Polar Plunge

0 Comment

Jump in!

Polar Plunge season is open! There are several Plunge dates and locations in 2023. New this year for San Francisco, we are adding a 5K/10K timed run; and for the Greater Sacramento Polar Plunge, we’ve added a 5K trail run.

All funds raised from the Polar Plunge will support Special Olympics’ life-changing programs in sports, health, education and athlete leadership. Through the power of play, Special Olympics works to empower children and adults with intellectual disabilities and spark joy throughout our communities. All of our programs are provided free of charge to athletes and families thanks to your support!

Support Special Olympics Northern California and Jump in!

Join us for the San Francisco 5K/10K & Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics Northern California on Saturday, March 4, at Aquatic Park.

Run, Plunge, or do both!

The family-friendly event will begin with scenic 5K and 10K timed runs along the Bay with beautiful views of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. Registration is $45 for the 5K and $55 for the 10K and includes a commemorative medal.  Awards will be presented to top 3 finishers in each division.  Costumes are encouraged.

Runners are encouraged to participate in the Plunge by raising an additional $125 and get ready to party with other brave souls with warm hearts who will get their chill on for Special Olympics.  Every Plunger must raise a minimum of $125 and will receive a Polar Plunge T-shirt and a BBQ lunch. Cool School participants must raise a minimum of $50 to Plunge but must raise a minimum of $125 to earn the T-shirt and meal. Additional fundraising is encouraged and incentive rewards can be earned based on the funds raised.  So what are you waiting for?  Dash or Splash or do both – join us for the coolest party of the year.
