Take the Plunge for Special Olympics Indiana!
Jumping into a freezing pool or natural body of water in the middle of winter may seem like a crazy idea, but over the past 23 years, thousands upon thousands of our supporters have risen to the challenge, braved the elements, and made Special Olympics Indiana’s annual Polar Plunge a huge success. And with a total of 17 Polar Plunge events set to be held at venues across the state this winter, you’re sure to find a convenient location to make a splash for our athletes by Freezin’ for a Reason!
The Polar Plunge is a fun and easy way to make a real and lasting difference in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities — and it’s an experience you won’t soon forget. Sign up today to support Special Olympics athletes in your community and beyond by joining us for this extreme fundraising event for the warm at heart!
Special Olympics Indiana’s signature fundraiser, the Polar Plunge is a series of exhilarating events held each winter where individuals and teams brave the elements by taking an icy dip to demonstrate their commitment to the cause. Each Polar Plunge event has its own unique personality, with additional activities ranging from costume contests to 5K fundraising races and the always popular “After Splash Bash” — a celebration following each event where participants are recognized and presented with awards. Those who are unwilling or unable to jump into the water can still be a part of the fun by raising money and attending as “virtual plungers” or by signing up for our second annual Polar Plunge Run!
All funds raised by the events directly benefit more than 18,000 Special Olympics athletes throughout the state, giving them the means to train locally and compete at the state level in a number of Olympic-type sports. Thank you for Freezin’ for a Reason!
