The Polar Plunge is a very cool way for the community to come out and show their support for Special Olympics DC. An above-ground swimming pool will be erected at The Yards Park, and participants will “take the plunge” to the cheers of the crowd!
To participate, raise at least $100 and receive the commemorative 2024- Polar Plunge t-shirt! Raise even more to receive other cool prizes.

The Polar Plunge and ICE YARDS will be joining forces again this year to take the frozen fun to another level! The event will include an ice bar, live music, interactive ice activities, food vendors from neighborhood favorites and so much more!
Too chicken to plunge? You can still make a donation to show your support of Special Olympics DC athletes, or fundraise to sponsor an athlete’s plunge!
Your involvement is critical in helping our athletes achieve their goals and in showing that our community embraces acceptance and inclusion. Your fundraising makes a real impact in the lives of Special Olympics DC athletes, helping them lead healthier lives and develop valuable life skills.
