Freezin’ for a Reason

Party like it’s 32 degrees! You may have heard about the Polar Plunge from a friend, seen it on TV or even read about it online, but what exactly is this “Plunge” everyone is talking about?

The Polar Plunge is a signature fundraising event for Special Olympics Utah. It’s a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations and businesses to support Special Olympics Utah athletes by raising money to jump into frigid water. All proceeds directly support the athletes of Special Olympics Utah providing athletic training, competition and other programs throughout the year.
