Polar Plunge 2020 | Special Olympics VA

February 4, 2023

Hilton Oceanfront Hotel
3001 Atlantic Ave
Virginia Beach, VA

You. On the sand. The sun shining. Waves crashing against the shore. Wearing your favorite bathing suit – or costume. In February.

"Wait, what?! Costume? Beach? In February?!"

Yes, the chill – and thrill – is real at the coolest fundraiser of the year, the Virginia Beach Polar Plunge! Join us Feb. 4 for a day packed with cool – a costume contest and parade along the Boardwalk, frosty beverages, live music, free Wawa hot chocolate and coffee, local vendors – all capped off with an icy dip into the frigid Atlantic Ocean for a great cause.

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!
