Various dates and locations in 2015. Have a blast and help raise awareness and funds for the Special Olympics. The Polar Plunge is a fun event where you run into super cold water (usually only about waist deep), then quickly run back out. Costumes are encouraged, making this experience an entertaining one filled with super heroes, animals, robots and loads of other characters. All this for a worthy cause that provides free year-round athletic opportunities to children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
