Plunge It Your Way – Say What?

2020 sucked. For 2021, the least we can do is bring back the Plunge. To keep our amazing colony safe, this year you can support the athletes of Special Olympics Virginia and Plunge however you’d like. This is your year!

How to become a Plunger

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we can’t hold an in-person event, but we know that won’t stop our colony! Participate as an individual or with friends, family, and colleagues on a team. Fundraise and receive the 2021 Plunge Pack, earn all new incentives, and join the fun statewide activities during the weeklong Plunge celebration. It all culminates with a virtual event ceremony on Saturday, February 6!

Gather your flock, create your team, and sign up to be a Plunger: Register .

Earn all new incentives and use our fundraising resources to bring in donations! Our athletes need your support now more than ever.

Plunge Prep
Decide how you want to Plunge at home and remember to be creative! Want to take an icy dip in your neighbor’s pool? Go for it! Rather take the year off and lounge in a hot tub? You do you. We promise, we won’t judge!

Whatever you decide, we want you to have fun and Plunge it YOUR WAY. At the end of the day, no matter what your Plunge looks like, you’ll be supporting 23,000+ Special Olympics Virginia athletes.

Share Your Plunge
