What is a Polar Plunge?
As the name implies, a Polar Plunge is a winter fundraising event whereby individuals have the “honour” of bravely jumping into freezing cold waters in the middle of the bitter Saskatchewan winter. They are able to participate by securing donations from friends, family members, co-workers, local businesses, or their community. It’s a great way for everyone—individuals, organizations, and businesses—to get involved in support of Special Olympics and show winter who’s boss.
How Does the Polar Plunge Raise Money?
Plungers will either pay the registration fee or fundraise the minimum requirement to be able to take part in the Plunge. Incentives will be given to Plungers based on how much money they raise in donations. Costumes are strongly encouraged!
How to participate in the Polar Plunge in 5 easy steps:
1. Select a location above, sign up online, and pay your $100 registration fee (you can raise this in pledges too!)
2. Collect pledges from friends, family, and coworkers - remember the more money you raise the more incentives you earn
3. Read our tips below for a fun, successful plunge
4. Pick your costume, including shoes (for safety reasons, footwear is mandatory for all plunge participants)
5. Show up, think warm thoughts and try not to chicken out
Participants must be 18 years of age or have the written consent of their legal parent or guardian.

Too Chicken to Plunge Raffle
Chicken? Don't worry - we've got you covered! You can stay warm and dry and still show your support for Special Olympics Saskatchewan with our Too Chicken to Plunge Raffle.
Purchase a numbered rubber chicken and have it do the plunging for you. Following the human plungers, all purchased chickens will be released into the water. Chickens will be rescued at random and if your ticket number matches the number on the chicken you could win some great prizes.
For more information on the Too Chicken to Plunge Raffle please contact Roxanne at LETRSK.Regina@gmail.com or 306-502-5052.
