The Polar Plunge® Winter Festival is Special Olympics Virginia’s largest fundraiser, during which individuals and teams, alongside Special Olympics athletes, take the plunge into Virginia Beach's icy Atlantic Ocean in the height of winter! Other crowd favorites include Friday’s Cool School Challenge for middle and high school students, the Friday Night Plunge Party, Saturday’s 5K, the Pee Wee Plunge for kids 10 and under, and the Saturday Night Beach Bash. Since its inception 20 years ago, more than 33,000 plungers have raised more than $7.5 million for Special Olympics Virginia. Whether you run, plunge or party – or do all three – you’ll be helping us build a bigger, better and COOLER community for our athletes and volunteers.
