8th Annual Big Bear Lake "Polar Plunge" for Special Olympics

Event Date(s)

Mar 02, 2019 | 10:00AM - 02:00PM

Special Olympics Southern California is excited to announce the 8th Annual “Polar Plunge.” Run, walk, or dance into the chilly waters of Big Bear Lake on Saturday, March 2nd  to raise funds for Special Olympics Inland Empire. For just a minimum of $50, you can participate in the coolest event of 2019 — the Polar Plunge. Not only will you brave the cold waters, but you'll have the opportunity to earn incentives, party with friends, and support Special Olympics.

The Polar Plunge is an event where all participants race into the frigid waters of Big Bear Lake.  Plungers decide how deep they’ll go and how long they stay in the water. Some Plungers only get their ankles wet while others stay in until the lifeguards make them leave the water!

The goal of the 8th Big Bear Polar Plunge is to raise a minimum of $100,000. Your support of this event will help Special Olympics Southern California reach out and provide year-round training and sports programs for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in the Inland Empire Region.
