2021 VIRTUAL Special Olympics Polar Plunge NOW until March 15!


Special Olympics

JOIN US FOR THE VIRTUAL POLAR PLUNGE

REGISTER AND GET THE SAME AMENITIES AS A PLUNGER. (DEADLINE: MARCH 15, 2021)

Many of the teams are short on participants this year due to COVID. So, here is another great option.

Have participants register on your team (or you can create a new team). If they register on your team, they can then help raise money for the Athletes, help your team and the best part, is they get the same amenities like everyone else. Raise $100 they will get a sweatshirt mailed to them. Raise more and the other incentive will be mailed to them as well.

Then SAFELY poor a bucket of water over your head, get in a kiddie pool, take a freezing shower and remember tape the fun in landscape mode (sideways).

Then send video to Teresa Gilli at tgilli@nyso.org after the event and we will combine videos from the other polar plunges and proudly display this on social media! Very cool right!

Do you need a little time to go virtual and do it after Feb 20th? This is ok! THAT IS THE BEST PART! YOU HAVE UNTIL MARCH 15TH TO SEND IN YOUR VIDEOS!

Check out these video from other who did virtual plunges last year:
