We did it! This year’s Polar Plunge season has been nothing short of extraordinary, raising over $1,030,000 for Special Olympics Ontario! From just 3 plunges in 2013 to 34 plunges in 2024, with over 50% increase in plungers compared to last year, our community’s dedication knows no bounds.⁣

Let’s celebrate this historic achievement together and reflect on how far we’ve come since Owen Sound hosted the very first Polar Plunge in Ontario in 1999. With over $4.5 MILLION raised since then, each plunge has made a profound impact on the lives of our athletes. Thank you to every plunger, volunteer, and supporter who helped us reach this incredible milestone!⁣

#FreezinForAReason
Whether you are an individual, organization or business, the Polar Plunge welcomes all do-gooders with a little courage and a warm heart willing to get cold and creative for a worthy cause. All funds raised will support programming and events for 23,000 Special Olympics athletes across the province!
