Why Plunge?

If you are a person with intellectual disabilities, you encounter adversities daily. You must have courage to try something that doesn’t come easily to you.

Our athletes bravely face challenges on the field, in the pool and on the court. They are the inspiration for this event.

The funds raised will provide year-round sports training, competition, leadership opportunities, and health services to Special Olympics athletes in our community. Be brrrr-ave and take the Plunge!
