Take the Plunge
The Polar Plunge, presented by the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run is a fun opportunity to support Special Olympics Ontario athletes by taking a flying leap – a leap into very cold water! Register for $100 or fundraise $150 to waive the registration fee.
NEW THIS YEAR
Too cold? Taking a year off? A retired Plunger? No problem!
Want to help support more than 23,000 Special Olympics Ontario athletes without having to jump in the freezin’ cold water?
Register as “Too Chicken to Plunge” and you will still have the ability to raise pledges, earn incentives, and be part of the fun! There is no registration fee if you’re too chicken, but you must fundraise $150 otherwise you take the plunge with your team!
Chickens are a great addition to every Plunge Team and are great at giving moral support, cheering from the comfort of the sidelines, taking team photos and helping to celebrate your team’s success.
The plunge will take place Sunday, February 4 at Crawford Dock Lower Brock St., Kingston.
Registration Site: Confederation Place Hotel (237 Ontario St., Kingston)
Registration starts at 9:00 AM and plunging starts at 11:00 AM.
Every Plunger will receive a FREE knit pom-pom toque!
