This year's event won't be in person. Learn what it means for you and your team!

This year, The Polar Plunge®, which is Special Olympics Virginia’s premier annual fundraiser, is going to look a little different. After what can only be described as a crazy 2020, we feel that our colony deserves a break. This year we want you to take the plunge – in your own hands. And don’t worry, we won’t judge. 2021 is your year.

Why Plunge?
We need you to take the Plunge because thousands of individuals with intellectual disabilities remain isolated and overlooked. The funds raised will provide year-round sports training, competition, leadership opportunities, and health services to 23,000 athletes.
