The Polar Plunge is a unique fundraising opportunity for individuals, organizations and businesses to support Special Olympics NC by jumping or running into a cold body of water in the middle of winter.
What is a Parking Lot Polar Plunge?
A Parking Lot Polar Plunge is an event where participants jump into a portable swimming pool filled with cold water. This allows a community without a body of water to host a polar plunge event.
The 2018 Polar Plunge season was a big success!
As the weather finally starts to warm up, the 2018 Polar Plunge season officially wraps up for Special Olympics North Carolina. Across the state, hundreds of people went freezing for a reason at 26 Polar Plunges in their communities, raising nearly $300,000 for Special Olympics in North Carolina. Hosted by law enforcement agencies and local Special Olympics programs, this annual fundraising campaign plays a vital role in providing sports training, health, and competition opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Congratulations to the Triad Chill polar plunge in Greensboro for being the largest of the 2018 events, raising more than $67,000!
