It's what happens when thousands of people around Oregon run into icy cold water to raise money for Special Olympics Oregon. As a "plunger" you register to participate in one of the five plunges around the state. Maybe you join a team. Maybe not. Then you raise a minimum of $50 in pledges from friends and family (but the more you raise, the bigger your incentive prizes). Then on plunge day you run or jump into the water and get out as fast as you can. You decide how far you want to go in. It's all done for fun and to raise money for a great cause.
Every three plungers allows one athlete to compete in Special Olympics Oregon's for an ENTIRE season. 10 seconds of being uncomfortable in the frigid waters of Oregon to provide months of training to the largest disability population in the state! The water is cold enough. Are you bold enough?
