Polar Plunge Portland


February 28, 2015

The Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support Special Olympics Oregon athletes by jumping, walking or slowly crawling into the frigid and icy Oregon waters. The event is open to the public, and all spectators are welcome free of charge. The best way to plunge is with a team! Get your friends, family members, co-workers and boss to take the plunge with you. Plus, there are some major incentives for those who raise the most money!

Every participant must raise a minimum of $50 for the privilege of taking a wintry dip in an icy body of water and will receive a commemorative long-sleeve t-shirt and a bowl of soup, plus bragging rights!

NEW! Portland Winterfest
Come out and enjoy live music, food, and activities all morning long!

If you're looking for a more extreme form of exhilaration, consider adding a little dash to your splash. Walk or run the 5K and then plunge!

Get the thrill without the chill....register for Too Chicken to Plunge! The first 50 registered "Too Chicken to Plunge" people to attend the Polar Plunge on Feb. 28th will be invited to enjoy the plunge from the Columbia River Yacht Club's HEATED barge. Stay nice and warm on this floating vessel while sipping on hot coffee or cocoa.
