Polar Plunge!

Get ready because Polar Plunge will be here sooner than you think! The Shreveport Polar Plunge will be held on February 2nd, and the Gonzales Polar Plunge will be held on February 16th.

What is it?  The Polar Plunge® is one of Special Olympics Louisiana’s largest fundraisers. With the help of our Law Enforcement Torch Run comrades this event is attracting hundreds of people to an otherwise deserted waterhole in the winter. Crowd favorites at this event include a costume contest, musical entertainment, 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 you can also donate to a Plunger! The Polar Plunge® is open to the public and also features musical entertainment, food, costumes, vendor displays, children’s activities and more. There is no fee to view the Plunge, but donations are always welcomed.

Thank you, Sponsors!
