Please note there is a $25 registration fee that goes towards the $50 fundraising minimum to plunge. All participants must meet the $50 requirement to plunge. What is it? The Polar Plunge is one of Special Olympics Louisiana’s largest fundraisers all year! With the help of our Law Enforcement Torch Run comrades this event is attracting hundreds of people to an otherwise deserted waterhole in the winter season. Individuals from all walks of life have committed to raise $50 and bear it all for thousands of Special Olympics Louisiana athletes! So sign up today to get a thrill from the chill and join us for our largest plunge yet! So, who can participate? Individuals and teams from businesses and organizations, alongside our athletes and thousands of community members, experience heartwarming and bone chilling extremes as they take the plunge into the icy cold water! (Plungers under the age 14 must have a parent/guardian with them.) Too chicken to plunge? Come watch! If taking an icy dip isn’t for you, then come be a fan of fun! You can donate to a plunger or team or just be a part of the fun as you watch folks run, plunge and freeze for a great cause! The Polar Plunge is open to the public and also features musical entertainment, food, costumes, vendor displays, a silent auction and more. There is no fee to view the event.
