It's crunch time. Special Olympics athletes need you to band together now more than ever! Our school and community-based programs are growing by leaps and bounds thanks to our FREE resources and year-round activities that unify athletes of all abilities. So let's make this a team effort. It's simple math. Plunge teams raise exponentially more funds than single plungers, so TEAM UP with your best buds in support of Special Olympics champions. The more the merrier!

Where Do the Funds Go?

The 2018 Polar Plunge season promises to be one of the best yet! But the plunge is so much more than just an icy dip in the water; Special Olympics Virginia provides year-round sports training, competition, leadership opportunities, and health services to more than 21,000 athletes of all abilities.

Our goal is to create a world where every single person is accepted and welcomed. We are helping to make the world a better, healthier, and more joyful place—one athlete, one volunteer, one family member, one plunger at a time.
