ALERT: In partnership with the Eau Claire Police Department, the Polar Plunge is CANCELED due to extreme weather and safety concerns for participants. Further information will be coming early next week about turning in pledges/donations and picking up incentives. Thank you for your understanding and for your support of Special Olympics Wisconsin. Stay safe this weekend.

In 2018, over 400 brave souls took the Polar Plunge in Eau Claire. The best part? After their bodies returned to 98.6°F and the donations were tallied, they raised more than $91,000 for Special Olympics Wisconsin. Booyah. We can't wait to see what the Eau Claire Plungers can do in 2019!
