What is the Polar Plunge? It's a Plunge into cold water to raise money to benefit Special Olympics Florida athletes. Aquatica is usually warm and tropical but for one day each year theyʼre chilling down their wave pool so you can experience the “thrill of the chill” all while supporting a great cause.
How can you participate? Become a Plunger or Virtual Plunger.
As a Plunger, you raise money for the privilege of plunging into cold water and earn great incentives along the way.
As a Virtual Plunger, you can still raise pledges and receive incentives just like a regular Plunger, but without going into the chilly water.
Who can Plunge? Only those who raise at least $100 earn the privilege of taking the Plunge. Plungers receive an official commemorative Plunge memento and bragging rights. The incentives and prizes increase based on the amount of money you raise. Minimum age to Plunge is 15.
Where is the Plunge taking place? The Plunge is taking place at Aquatica - SeaWorldʼs Waterpark. 5800 Water Play Way, Orlando, Florida 32821
When is the Plunge taking place? January 21, 2012. Registration begins at 9:30AM followed by the Opening Ceremony at 11:00AM and the Plunge.
Why are we Plunging? Youʼll be freezinʼ for reason! All proceeds support Special Olympics Florida, which provides year-round sports training and competition to children and adults with intellectual disabilities at no cost to the athlete or their caregiver as a means to achieve physical fitness, self- esteem and life skills necessary to be a productive, respected and contributing members of their communities.
How to join a Plunge team? You can join a team when you register or at anytime through your Plunge fundraising page. Teams consist of a minimum of 4 Plungers who have each met the $100 goal. Plungers may only be part of ONE team.
Feeling Competitive? Awards will be given for: Biggest Team, Highest Grossing Team, and Best Costume.
Isn't this risky? We want only people in good health to participate as Plungers. Individuals with heart conditions should choose to support the Plunge as a Virtual Plunger.
