Tim's Rivershore Polar Plunge Festival

Run. Plunge. Play. Repeat... in Northern VA    


Saturday, February 22, 2014
Dumfries, VA

Where else can you brave the cool waters of the Potomac with 100+ fearless costume-clad friends – and support a good cause at the same time? At 2:30 p.m. Feb. 22, hundreds will gather at Tim's Rivershore and, on our signal, bravely dash into the icy waters.


Whether you just dip your ankles or take a minute to splash around, it's the coolest thing you'll do all year – not to mention you are creating more opportunities for our athletes to experience the life-changing benefits of participating in Special Olympics — all at no cost to themselves or their families.


Plungers must raise $100 to participate; those under 18 must have a parent or guardian signature.


Did we mention there would be cool prizes? For just $100 in pledges – the cost to Plunge – Plungers automatically get the official Polar Plunge® Winter Festival long sleeve T-shirt and bragging rights over everyone who just couldn't bear it! Plus, the more money you raise, the more cool stuff you can get including:


  • $100+       Long sleeve Polar Plunge T-shirt
  • $250+       Polar Plunge towel
  • $750+       Umbrella
  • $1000+     Wear our GoPro helmet camera - we'll provide the video footage on DVD after the event
  • $1500+     1/4 zip sweatshirt
  • $2500+     Wheeled overnight travel bag
  • $5000+     Cold weather parka OR golf bag


Plungers can create their own Plunge Web Page for friends, family and coworkers to visit and donate online. It’s quick and easy through firstgiving.
