COVID-19 Safety Measures – Your Safety is our Top Priority

Cool Schools

Low-key, we're spilling the tea for the 2021 Polar Plunge. TBH, the Plunge is going to look a bit different this year, but we promise it will still be pretty chill, no cap. And at the end of the day no matter what, it's supporting the athletes of Special Olympics Wisconsin, right? Get the dub and join us for the Polar Plunge today. Your Adventure. Your Way.

The Tea

Option A: Chillin’ at Home

  • The rules to this one are simple, stay home, get cold, be safe and don’t forget to snap a selfie or record a vid!
  • Go at this one solo, or with your squad–friends, bae, club, team, etc. (socially distant, of course)
  • Here are some ideas to get you started:
    • Add a bucket of ice water to your favorite TikTok dance
    • Take the Plunge into a bathtub full of ice
    • Take a kiddie pool Plunge in your backyard
    • Dump an iced beverage from your favorite coffee shop on your head
    • Swimsuit snow angels
    • Winter water balloon fight
    • Take the Plunge over Zoom or FaceTime with your besties
    • Your best idea here!
  • Score a Chillin’ at Home Cozy Kit (if you raised $75 by 2/4) full of cool swag

Option B: The Great Outdoors

  • ‘Plunge’ down a ski hill for the GOAT tubing or sledding experience. Snowshoeing also available. 10 locations and 6 dates to choose from. Options vary by location.
  • Take home an exclusive 2021 Polar Plunge long-sleeve t-shirt!
