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 five 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 46,000 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.



We love our sponsors!

Polar Plunge continues to improve the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This simply wouldn't be possible without the incredible support of our sponsors. Click the buttons below to learn more!
