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. 3 for a day packed with cool – a costume contest and parade along the Boardwalk, frosty beverages, live music, free Wawa hot chocolate and coffee, and local vendors – all capped off with an icy dip into the frigid Atlantic Ocean for a great cause. Plus, join the party early by grabbing your glow and participating in our 5K Run/Waddle Friday evening, followed by the Pre-Plunge party!

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 21,000+ Special Olympics Virginia athletes. We’re not sure if you can get any cooler than that!
