Hard Rock Cafe team members yell as they emerge from the water after jumping at the 2022 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 16 and under) 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!


Participants in the 2022 Greater Cincinnati Polar Plunge leap from the stage toward the pool with the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame in the background.
