What is Polar Plunge?

Polar Plunge is an annual fundraising drive for those brrrr-ave enough to take the challenge! Participants ‒ or "plungers" ‒ raise funds to get wild and plunge into chilly water at three different locations across Florida.

It’s the coolest event in FL ‒ literally ‒ and it’s all for an amazing cause! All proceeds help Special Olympics Florida provide year-round training and services for 44,000 athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Fundraise, create a costume, laugh, cheer, and PLUNGE with a community that shares your passion to help individuals with intellectual disabilities thrive and excel.
