Polar Plunge®

Take the Plunge into icy cold waters this winter to help provide over 12,000 athletes with an opportunity to participate in sports training and competition programs that help them live longer, happier, healthier lives. Each plunger will commit to raise at least $100 to support Special Olympics athletes throughout the state. Whether supporting a local program or raising money for general donations, every dollar you have raised directly supports year-round sports training and competition for athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Massachusetts.
