Are you brave enough to bear the cold?

Join this cool fundraising event. Individuals fundraise or pay $125 or more for the experience of plunging into chilly waters and supporting over 27,000 Special Olympics athletes in year-round sports training, health initiatives, education and leadership programs throughout Northern California & Nevada.  If you can't "bear" the thought of chilly water but want to support Special Olympics, you can register as a chicken. You’ll enjoy all the festivities and incentive rewards, without taking the plunge.  The Theme for Polar Plunge is the 60's so break out your love beads, flower power and bell bottoms and we'll have a gas!
