What is it?  The Polar Plunge is one of Special Olympics Louisiana’s largest fundraisers, attracting hundreds of people to an otherwise deserted waterhole in the winter. Crowd favorites at this event include the Costume contest, musical entertainment, gigantic Ice sculpture, as well as vendor displays and giveaways.

Who? Individuals and teams from businesses and organizations, alongside our athletes and thousands of community members, experience heartwarming and bone chilling extremes as they take the plunge into the icy cold water during the winter for Special Olympics Louisiana athletes!!

Don’t have what it takes? Come watch! If taking an icy dip isn’t for you, then come be a fan of fun as you watch folks Run, Plunge, and Freeze for a great cause. The Polar Plunge is open to the public and also features musical entertainment, food, costumes, ice sculptures, vendor displays, children’s activities and more. There is no fee to view the Plunge, but donations are always welcomed.
