What is The Plunge?

You’ve never jumped into frigid Colorado waters in the middle of the winter? Well, we can help change that!

Each year, the Polar Plunge challenges thousands of brave jumpers at numerous locations around the state. It’s a great way for everyone—individuals, organizations and businesses—to get involved in supporting Special Olympics Colorado. All funds raised go towards programming and events for nearly 25,00 athletes statewide.

Think you have what it takes? The concept is simple: participants raise a minimum of $75 and take a dip into one of Colorado’s frozen lakes (or a pool). But the Plunges are so much more than that: They’re the kind of fun and thrilling events that you really have to experience to understand. Grab some friends, get pumped and register today!
