Greater Cincinnati Polar Plunge

Go for the Cold! Join us for the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics.
Raise a minimum of $75 (or $50 for Polar Bears under 18) and take a chilly winter dip. Prizes for the top individual fundraiser and for the top fundraising teams in corporate/civic, school and law enforcement divisions. There are also prizes for the best individual and group costumes.

Can’t plunge, but still want to support Special Olympics? No problem. Register as a Personal Plunger. You still get a Polar Plunge shirt and are eligible for all other fundraising awards.

Either way, you’ll get The Chill of a Lifetime!
