Special Olympics NC Polar Plunge Calendar

It’s Time to Take the Plunge!

The Polar Plunge for Special Olympics North Carolina is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support Special Olympics North Carolina athletes by jumping into our frigid winter bodies of water across the state.

Beginning in January, there will be multiple opportunities to take the plunge across the state. The Plungers must raise a fundraising minimum to jump to frozen glory. Plungers can raise additional funds, earning them extra incentives along the way! Each plunge is different and has an exciting atmosphere that you can become involved in.

Events like the Polar Plunge help support 39,000 Special Olympics North Carolina athletes. Special Olympics athletes around the world follow the oath: “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”

Plungers can follow this example by bravely taking a chilly dip!Polar Plunge bear 2014 (3)
