Polar Plunge Event Info

Polar Plunge is a fundraising effort organized by law enforcement agencies throughout the state benefiting Special Olympics Washington.

Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations and businesses to support local Special Olympics athletes by collecting pledges and plunging into various frigid water locations across Washington State.

Who can take the plunge? Anyone with a little courage, a warm heart and a desire to support a worthy cause is welcome!

Too Chicken to Plunge? Cheer on from the sidelines in the “Chicken Coop.” You can still raise money, win prizes and make a difference in the lives of local athletes.

Each participant will receive a complimentary cup of Ivar’s famous clam chowder. Ivar’s will also offer cups of chowder to non-participants/general public for $2.00. All proceeds from chowder sales will go directly to Special Olympics Washington.
