Santa Cruz Polar Plunge

February 28, 2015 @ 11:40 am - 3:00 pm


The Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support local Special Olympics athletes by jumping or running into a chilly body of water in the middle of winter!

The Polar Plunge is NOT a swim, it’s a party! For a minimum of $125 in donations, brave souls with warm hearts take a quick dip in chilly waters and then share bragging rights at a post plunge party.

Don’t want to dip, but still want to help? Register as a “chicken” and you’ll be excused from plunging, but probably not from a little friendly ridicule for those who will.

Participants collect pledges on-line and set up their own personal fundraising page on our Polar Plunge® website and then email family, friends and co-workers to support them right from the comfort of their living room.

Costumes are encouraged. Awards presented to top fundraisers, best costumes and more. Individuals who raise a minimum of $125 will receive a Polar Plunge hooded Sweatshirt and free admittance to the post plunge festivities. Additional incentive levels and rewards can be earned!
