Polar Plunge

The Polar Plunge ® is the best day at the beach all year – and it’s in the winter! Every year Special Olympics Massachusetts’ bravest supporters are “Freezin’ for a Reason” when they plunge into the icy waters of the Atlantic.

The Plunge is the biggest single-day fundraising event of the year. Plungers and Chickens (fundraisers who don’t take the plunge) compete for bragging rights in various team and individual fundraising categories, and are then treated to a big party at the beach with music, food, costume contests and more!
