2009 POLAR PLUNGE

 

As Special Olympics Indiana’s signature fundraising event, the Polar Plunge invites Hoosier residents to be “freezin’ for a reason” and “take the plunge” for adults and children with intellectual disabilities. For the last decade, brave souls and warm hearts have jumped into bodies of water in February to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Indiana.

In 2009, Special Olympics Indiana will celebrate 10 years with the Polar Plunge by offering the Plunge at 10 sites across the state—one for each of the 10 program areas.

In order to plunge, participants must raise a “bear” minimum of $75. Awards are given for those who raise the most funds for Special Olympics Indiana. This wet and wacky event also includes prizes for the best costume, incentives for dollars raised and an After Splash Bash.
