Take a dip in the icy waters of the Columbia river and be a part of the “coolest” event of the year! Join the fun, help raise funds and win prizes all in support of Special Olympics Washington.

Special Olympics Polar Plunge Kennewick is a fundraising effort organized by law enforcement agencies across the state to benefit Special Olympics Washington. This unique opportunity gives individuals, organizations and businesses the chance to support Special Olympics Washington by collecting pledges for the “opportunity” to plunge into frigid water across Washington State.

Each individual must raise a minimum of $50 to participate. Individuals that raises the minimum donation will receive an official Polar Plunge t-shirt, and entry to the post-event party. Collect pledges from family, friends and colleagues and win prizes. Individuals and teams may register online and create a fundraising page.

NEW for 2013: Enhanced site layout, streamlined registration & packet pick-up AND plunge order based on registration order…first to register, first to plunge!

All proceeds collected by Plungers benefit Special Olympics Washington and the 10,000 athletes across the state.  Special thanks to GESA Credit Union and Battelle! Check out some plunge videos below and join team KORD HERE.
