Brave Plungers set to make big splash for Special Olympics BC

SOBC – Abbotsford athlete James Clifford gets bold and cold

Feeling ICE-olated? Join fearless and fun-loving Plungers for the first-ever Virtual Polar Plunge for Special Olympics BC!

This fun and freezing event is open to province-wide participants. Plungers will register and fundraise to make a difference for SOBC, then get up close and personal with icy waters at home between February 20 and March 7. The Virtual Polar Plunge will raise vital funds and awareness to support Special Olympics BC’s life-changing programs for people with intellectual disabilities.

There are many ways to get freezin’ for a reason with this year’s event. Plungers can take an icy bath, face off with a hose, get blasted by water balloons, jump into powdery snow, and so much more. After completing the chilly challenge, participants can share videos and photos on social media to qualify for contests and prizes.

Watch SOBC – Campbell River athlete Ashley Adie, SOBC – Abbotsford athlete James Clifford, and SOBC – Revelstoke athlete Terina Sessa take the Plunge.

Polar Plunge for SOBC events are staged in partnership with the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics BC. The Polar Plunge is a proud LETR tradition, and every year thousands of people get bold and cold for Special Olympics at events around the world.

In a typical year, courageous participants gather in large groups and charge into icy waves at Polar Plunge for Special Olympics BC events in Vancouver, Victoria, and Revelstoke. This year, SOBC supporters won’t be plunging together in person, but will be together in spirit, taking individual icy dips to support this important cause.

All are welcome to register for the Virtual Polar Plunge as a team or an individual at
www.plunge4specialolympics.com. Supporters can also donate to SOBC through the Plunge.
