Be Freezin' for a Reason 

Due to unforeseen circumstances we have made the difficult decision to merge our
2018 Polar Plunge at the Bronx Zoo with our other two NYC Plunges:


Westchester Polar Plunge

Sunday, November 17th

Glen Island Park

Registration at 10am

Plunge at noon



Staten Island Polar Plunge

Sunday, December 2nd

The Vanderbilt at South Beach

Registration at 10am

Plunge at noon


We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience and cooperation as we make this transition.



  • Plungers may choose to participate at either the Staten Island or Westchester Plunge.
  • No changes need to be made to the website.
  • Teams will be asked to inform us of which Plunge they will be attending.
  • Neither the Westchester Plunge, nor the Staten Island Plunge has a registration fee or fundraising minimum
  • Plungers will earn a sweatshirt for raising $150 or more
  • Should there be any issues in regards to transportation or scheduling, please let me know so that I can help find a solution

Gather family, friends, teammate and co-workers to start a POLAR PLUNGE TEAM or join as an individual! Ask everyone you know to help sponsor your plunge in support of local Special Olympics athletes, every dollar makes a difference.
