Polar Plunge

Take the 2022 Polar Plunge! Register at PolarPlungeMA.com.

Taking the Polar Plunge into icy cold waters helps provide over 14,000 athletes with an opportunity to participate in sports training and competition programs that help them live longer, happier, healthier lives. Each plunger commits to raise at least $100 to support Special Olympics athletes throughout the state. Every dollar raised directly supports year-round sports training and competition for athletes with intellectual disabilities in Massachusetts.

What is a Polar Plunge?

A Polar Plunge is an event where participants raise money for Special Olympics and jump in a cold body of water along with hundreds of other brrrave Plungers. Our plunges are held from the Berkshires to the Cape at lakes, oceans, pools, ski resorts and even a brewery. Some Plunges include costume parades, and others feature local food vendors. Each Plunge is unique, but the similarity between them all is the sense of community and the common goal of raising money for Special Olympics Massachusetts athletes.
