About the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics BC

As an established Special Olympics fundraiser throughout North America, the Polar Plunge has a history of people laughing and splashing for a cause.

The 2019 Polar Plunge for Special Olympics BC events will have families, individuals, businesses, law enforcement members, and celebrities taking pledges to jump into cold waters on Plunge Day, all to support and raise awareness for Special Olympics BC.

Plungers will be freezin’ for a reason – fundraising to bring quality sport training and competition to individuals with intellectual disabilities, transforming the lives of children and adults through the joy of sport.

Special Olympics athletes around the world follow the oath: “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” Polar Plungers can follow this example by bravely taking a chilly dip!
