Celebrating Special Olympics New York's 50th Anniversary

This year Special Olympics New York celebrates a remarkable 50 years of giving athletes not only the opportunity to play and enjoy a sport, but to become a champion

Help raise money for the athletes of Special Olympics New York by asking your friends, family, co-workers, etc. to support you in taking the PLUNGE! Whether you'd like to Plunge virtually or in person, we have a plan for you!

Every Plunger that raises $150 receives an official Plunge sweatshirt, raise more money and receive more great prizes!

All participants will receive community service hours!

Polar Plunge 2020 COVID-19 SAFETY PLAN


Instead of large groups congregating and plunging at once, we have restructured the event so that each team will have a personalized Polar Plunge experience in a controlled and safe environment.  Polar Plunge waves will be assigned by team and be compliant with the CDC event guidelines and NYS Governors orders.  All spectators and volunteers will be required to wear masks.  Plungers will be asked to wear masks up until plunge time.


-All plunge times will be alloted per team or group of 50 people or less


-All participants, spectators, and volunteers must comply with all COVID-19 restrictions

-BRRR-tual Polar Plunge options too!

Special Olympics New York has 68,251 athletes training and competing year-round in 23 Olympics-style sports. Our athletes and their families or caregivers are NEVER CHARGED to participate! It costs $400 to support training and competition for one athlete for one sports season. Set your Plunge goal at $400 and you have sponsored an athlete for an entire season!
