Plunging makes a difference
Since 1999, plungers and their supporters have raised nearly $19 million for Special Olympics athletes, right here in Wisconsin. Donations support the 18 different Olympic-type sports offered year-round, including National and World Games, as well as free health care screenings to ensure optimal health and performance during competition. The outcome? The opportunity for over 10,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities to experience joy, pride and respect. Pretty amazing, huh?
How you can get involved
The Polar Plunge is for everyone. It really is. From young to not so young, solos to teams, principals to employees, and plungers to non-plungers. The world unites during Plunge season. You can plunge solo, on a team with your best friends, on a team with your favorite co-workers, as a school group, as a church choir, or really… however you want. We just want you in the water! The whole day is jam-packed with fun and festivities, and there’s certainly a way for everyone to be involved!
