Jump in!

Polar Plunge season is open! There are several Plunge dates and locations in 2023. New this year for San Francisco, we are adding a 5K/10K timed run; and for the Greater Sacramento Polar Plunge, we’ve added a 5K trail run. 

All funds raised from the Polar Plunge will support Special Olympics' life-changing programs in sports, health, education and athlete leadership. Through the power of play, Special Olympics works to empower children and adults with intellectual disabilities and spark joy throughout our communities. All of our programs are provided free of charge to athletes and families thanks to your support!
