2023 Polar Plunge | Seattle, Feb. 25

February 16, 2023

This winter, waterfronts across our state will once again be packed with brave polar plungers. Just chill though, you don’t have to get in the water. Whether you get cold for a cause or show up to cheer others on, this annual tradition has something for everyone. Find the polar plunge event in your community and join us for an experience like no other.

By joining in the fun, you’ll be supporting 7,500+ athletes with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities across our state.

Get Your Costumes Ready!

The costume contest is one of the major traditions of Polar Plunge. Dressing up to take a chilly dip may not be something you ever thought you’d do, but it’s a ton of fun and makes for some incredible photos. It’s never too early to start planning your solo or group costume!

Each Polar Plunge event will feature a costume contest with prizes. Winners will be chosen based on crowd response, so bring your friends and family to cheer you on!

Individual Winners of the Costume Contest will win a medal and a Polar Plunge Prize Pack! Team Winners of the Costume Contest will win a trophy and a medal!

Why We Plunge

Everyone deserves a chance at a happy and purposeful life. Yet children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities face doubt, barriers, and low expectations. For many, Special Olympics is the only place where they find an opportunity to participate in their communities, develop belief in themselves, and feel like champions.

By signing up or donating, you will change the life of an athlete and help us reach even more individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Washington.
