Benefiting SPECIAL OLYMPICS UTAH

FREEZIN' for a REASON for Special Olympics Utah

Special Olympics Utah is excited to host the 2018 Polar Plunge - SLC at Sheraton Hotel Salt Lake City. 

The Polar Plunge is the “coolest” event of the year!

Last year, our brave athletes & community friends took the plunge in Utah. The best part?  After their bodies returned to 98.6°F and the donations were tallied, they raised more than $11,000 for Special Olympics Utah to support sports, competitions and programs.  Booyah!

Are you brave enough to take the plunge and get freezin' for a reason? 

All proceeds of the Polar Plunge goes directly to benefit Special Olympics Utah athletes including those who participate right in Salt Lake County like the teams from U of U, Tooele, Panthers, Jaguars, Hartvigsen and many more!
