Think you have what it takes to go for the cold?! Join hundreds of students and teachers as they embrace the icy Atlantic and take a mad dash into the ocean, while raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics Virginia. Before you are freezin’ for a reason, you will get to enjoy a costume contest, DJ in the tent, get free hot chocolate from Wawa, hear from a Special Olympics Virginia athlete and more!

Remember it's $100 to take the Plunge ‒ and the more you raise, the cooler the prizes. Plus, your coolest day of the year is helping fund year-round programs for 18,000+ Special Olympics Virginia athletes. We’re not sure if you can get any cooler than that!
