Polar Plunge 2020 | Special Olympics VA

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? In February?!

Yes, the chill – and thrill – is real at the coolest fundraiser of the year, the Virginia Beach Polar Plunge! Join us Feb. 5 for a day packed with cool – from our annual 1 and 4 Milers, 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 23,000+ Special Olympics Virginia athletes. We’re not sure if you can get any cooler than that!
