‘Freezin’ for a reason’ polar plunge set for February

Join hundreds of brave souls across the state for the coolest thing you’ll do in 2022! Whether you jump, run or tiptoe in you will be helping us build a bigger, better, and COOLER community for our 18,000+ Special Olympics athletes. The Polar plunge has become the signature fundraising event of Special Olympics. Plunges take place all over the US with nine of those plunges taking place in Tennessee during February. 

This year Manchester has been added to the list of Polar Plunges. Join in on Saturday, February 26, at the Manchester Rec Center (557 N. Woodland St.) where folks who have been raising money on behalf of our Tennessee Special Olympic athletes will take a cold jump into the pool!

Costume contest is at 11:00 am and participants will start jumping in the pool immediately after. New this year – Too Chicken to Plunge! Want to support Special Olympics Tennessee athletes but really, REALLY don’t want to plunge into the frigid water? It’s your lucky day!  Register online as a “Too Chicken” plunger and you can still raise money, earn incentives, and be part of the fun! And on event day you can even dip your toes in the kiddie pool to show your support!
