WHAT A GREAT PLUNGE YEAR!

Thank you Thank you! for making 2014 Polar Plunge season one for the books! There were over 3,000 people taking the plunge in Portland, Eugene, Corvallis, Bend and Medford. We also had over 400 people participate in our inaugural 5K fun Run & Walk! Even with having to reschedule 3 of our plunges because of bad weather, we still raised over $400,000 for the amazing athletes of Special Olympics Oregon. Our athletes compete year round and wouldn't be able to do so without your generosity. Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see what 2015 polar plunge brings!
