We encourage you to help raise as much money as possible for Special Olympics Iredell County.

Special Olympics athletes are never charged to compete, and we need your help to continue to make this possible!

Encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to participate as plungers, fundraisers for the cause, or just have them come to the event to cheer you on!

The optional 1 mile run will be hosted by McLellandโ€™s Race Team.

The MORE YOU Raise, The MORE You Get!

When you raise $50, you will receive the 2024 Polar Plunge T-Shirt!

But, why stop there? Every dollar you raise helps support Special Olympics athletes across Iredell County!

Why Plunge? If you are a person with intellectual disabilities, you encounter adversities daily. You must have courage to try something that doesnโ€™t come easily to you. Our athletes bravely face challenges on the field, in the pool and on the court. They are the inspiration for this event. The funds raised will provide year-round sports training, competition, leadership opportunities, and health services to Special Olympics athletes in our community.

Be brrrr-ave and take the Plunge!
