Plunge for Special Olympics!

Hop, skip, run or jump into chilly waters for our amazing Special Olympics athletes.

Funds raised will help us continue to create change in our communities and enhance the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities through sports.  Join the fun and make a difference!

This year, the Plunge theme is the 1960’s!  Break out your love beads, flower power and bell bottoms and get ready to have a gas!  

What is the Polar Plunge

Well first of all, the Plunge is NOT a swim. The Plunge is a crazy fundraising event where people raise a minimum of $125 for the opportunity to run into and out of chilly waters along with other brave souls.  Additional Incentive rewards of $300, $500, $1,000 and $2,500 can be earned so the more you raise, the more you can receive (and the more our athletes benefit). If you can’t “bear” the thought of chilly water then just register as a chicken.  You’ll be excused from Plunging but still get to enjoy all the festivities and incentive rewards that our Plungers receive.

Costumes are strongly encouraged, that’s half of the fun.   Dress to Impress!


Get ready to have a blast when you participate in the mother of all Plunges, the shining jewel, the South Lake Tahoe Polar Plunge.  All registered participants must raise or pay a minimum of $125 and are invited to the Post-Splash Bash featuring a complimentary lunch, awards, no-host bar and other treats to warm you up after your brisk dip.  Polar Plunge T-shirts are distributed at the Plunge, any other incentives you earn will be mailed to you.  Watch for an email after the Plunge to claim your rewards!

Guest can join you for the Post Plunge lunch and festivites for $35 a person.  Click here for more details and to purcahse tickets.

Raise $1,000 or more and you’ll get access to the Desert Hills VIP heated tent stocked full of delicious food and drinks.
