Freezin’ for a Reason

Special Olympics Indiana’s largest signature fundraising event has raised more than $7 million dollars since its inception in 2000.

More than 3,000 of our bravest supporters brave the icy cold waters each winter, fundraising to support athletes with intellectual disabilities before taking the Plunge at one of 15 or more event locations. Over 5,000 spectators and volunteers watch as both individuals and teams in costumes jump in freezing water to participate in this incredible team-building, bucket list challenge.

Join the Fun

Sponsorship opportunities for the Polar Plunge are available for companies that want to partner with Special Olympics Indiana. Polar Plunge Sponsorship affords recognition in registration mailings, digital communications, website recognition, and promotions on the Polar Plunge app.

Please contact Scott Furnish for information about becoming a sponsor.
