Polar Plunge. Ball Shriveling Time for a Good Cause

by Accidental Bear

We’re Freezin’ for a Reason! 

Hundreds of brave souls with warm hearts will take the plunge in the chilly waters of the San Francisco Bay at Crissy Field to raise much needed funds for Special Olympics Northern California!

The Polar Plunge is NOT a swim! It’s a party! Dress up in a crazy costume, dip your big toe or your whole body and then off to the post plunge party!

Plungers can create their own Plunge Web Page so that friends, family and co-workers can visit and donate right online.

Okay so if plunging is not your thing, you can still participate! Join our “Chicken Coop” Team and raise funds for Special Olympics. On plunge day you’ll sit in Chicken Coop with the other chickens! Sure you might be the subject of ridicule by all of the braver souls who took the plunge, but hey it’s all for a good cause! And what’s a little ribbing between friends – you’re dry – right? Our chickens receive the same incentive prizes as our plungers because we believe that Chickens are people too!

You can register as an individual, a team captain, or join an existing team.

REWARDS! (You didn’t think we’d ask you to do this without a little something from us do you?)

Raise $100 or more – receive the official hooded Polar Plunge Sweatshirt and free admission to the post plunge party where you can share bragging rights over all the people who couldn’t bear it!
