The event helps raise funds for state and local Special Olympics programs and generates awareness of the power of Special Olympics, which allows children and adults with intellectual disabilities to live active lives through socialization, exercise, and friendly competition.

The Polar Plunge is fun, safe, and simple—to be a Plunger all one has to do is register online, raise a minimum of $75 in pledges, and show up at Metea Park (8401 Union Chapel Rd., northeast Fort Wayne, near Leo-Cedarville) on February 21 between 8am-10am where they’ll prepare to take a quick dip in the ice-cold lake water. Following the Plunge, participants and spectators are invited to join the After Splash Bash in the Metea Park Nature Center to socialize and enjoy food and beverages.

Special Olympics is encouraging as many businesses and schools as possible to get involved by putting together teams of Plungers or by nominating one lucky person to serve as their Plunge representative and helping them raise funds. Prizes are awarded for fundraising levels met and door prizes will be drawn at the After Splash Bash.
