2012 Polar Plunge

The 2012 Plunge: A Huge Success!

More than 3,150 people plunged in Portland, Corvallis, Eugene, Medford and Bend. That's up from last year.

Together we raised over $460,000 in pledges, just about equal with last year's record-setting amount. An amazing achievement when compared with so many non-profits seeing a drop in donations.

Our Super Plunge" team of fourteen volunteers stepped up and plunged once an hour for 24 hours, raising over $50,000! (talk about crazy in a good way).

Making A Huge Difference In The Lives Of Our Athletes

The numbers and the personal challenges are a lot of fun. But most important, your involvement in the plunge is making it possible for Special Olympics Oregon to provide more events for our athletes, including the State Games.

Get ready for the 2013 Plunge!

Even though it's warm outside it's not too early to start planning for the 2013 Polar Plunge! You can register online at Start recruiting teammates and your fundraising now!
