2013 Florida Polar Plunge

Saturday, February 02, 2013


What is the Polar Plunge? It's a Plunge into cold water by brrrave individuals to raise money to benefit Special Olympics Florida athletes.


Aquatica is usually warm and tropical, but once each year they chill down their wave pool so you can experience the “thrill of the chill” all while supporting a great cause. Plungers enjoy all of Aquatica’s heated rides for the rest of the day.
Who can Plunge? To become a Plunger, all it takes to Plunge is $100 in pledges and nerves of steel. (Minimum age to Plunge is 15)
Do not want to Plunge, but still participate? Become a Virtual Plunger. Raise pledges and receive incentives just like a regular Plunger, but without going into the chilly water.
When & Where is the Plunge? Saturday, February 2, 2013 at Aquatica - SeaWorldʼs Waterpark. 5800 Water Play Way, Orlando, Florida 32821
How does it work? When you register online, you create your own Plunge Web Page. Friends, family and co-workers can donate online and track your progress. As you raise money, you earn very cool incentives.
