Special Olympics Polar Plunge

  • overview
  • Show your strength at the annual Polar Plunge and 5K Run-N-Plunge or one mile fun walk for all abilities-- this flat course is stroller, wheel chair and dog friendly. Cheer on the brave, or participate as plungers conquer cold conditions while diving into the chilly Atlantic Ocean. Contestants are encouraged to dress up, find their inner superhero and can opt for the 5K Run-N-Plunge, a one mile fun walk or just the Plunge.  You can even take the Plunge with your pooch! No matter which option you choose, the day is sure to leave you smiling with live music, vendors, games and food trucks.
