Polar Plunge 2017

February 11, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Freezin’ for a Reason with Special Olympics DC
Nationals Park!

Saturday, February 11, 2017

Noon to 4:00pm


The Polar Plunge is a very cool way for the community to come out and show their support for Special Olympics DC.  Three above-ground swimming pools will be erected in Nationals Park for plungers to jump in to the cheers of the crowd!

How do I get started?

Visit give.specialolympicsdc.org/polarplunge2017 and click one of the Register buttons:

You can start a team, join a team or participate as an individual.  Set up your Personal Plunge Page and you are on your way to Freezin’ for a Reason!

To join in the fun, participants must raise at least $100 and will receive a free t-shirt. Raise more to earn your choice of great gifts, get your plunge on the jumbotron screen, take a photo with a ‘President’ or try your skill in the Nationals’ batting cages!

After your dip you’ll warm up in the two party zones:  the Budweiser Brew House and the Centerfield Social. Plungers, family, friends and spectators will enjoy a festive atmosphere with music, refreshments and parades of plungers in costume for all to enjoy.

Did you know?

Special Olympics D.C. provides year-round sports training and competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in 12 Olympic-style sports, all made possible all at no cost to participants thanks to your support.
