Special Olympics Delaware - Polar Plunge

Thank you for joining us for the 25th Annual Lewes Polar Bear Plunge to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Delaware

Held annually on the first Sunday in February, the Plunge has developed into a truly unique Delaware happening and has become one of Special Olympics Delaware’s most significant fundraisers.  We now offer a full weekend of activities leading up to the Plunge - including a 5K Run to the Plunge, a Restaurant Chili Contest, and an Ice Sculpting Demonstration - all of which take place the day before.

This site will direct you on how to register for the Polar Bear Plunge, the 5K Run to the Plunge, and the Pooch Plunge.  You can join a team and create a personal fundraising page which you can send to family and friends for support!
