Event Description

POLAR PLUNGE IS BACK FOR 2021! You can once again take the Plunge in Alberta in support of Special Olympics Alberta – only VIRTUALLY! The Polar Plunge, presented by the Law Enforcement Torch Run, challenges ANYONE to bravely participate in this exciting and accessible fundraiser, while helping 140 communities across Alberta. It’s a great way for everyone - individuals, organizations, and teams - to get involved in support of Special Olympics and show winter who’s boss. PLUNGE OPTIONS We are so excited to be having a virtual plunge this year! It will not only provide an option for those isolating, but will also expand the reach of our event to all corners of the province – and beyond! While virtual events are plentiful these days, we have no doubt that the creativity will be flowing for all those that choose to participate. There are no restrictions as to how to get your plunge done – whether snow angels, cold buckets of water, or in a kiddie pool in your backyard, the opportunities are almost endless! Have some fun and get creative! Check out our FAQs for more information or email us at info@specialolympics.ab.ca with any additional questions. In recognition of our typical in-person celebrations, we’ll be recognizing these locations on the following dates: January 31 - Edmonton February 6 - Lethbridge February 20 - Calgary March 6 - Red Deer March 13 - Medicine Hat WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME? Besides the pride you’ll feel when you get #freezinforareason, you’ll also deserve an extra pat on the back for helping out Special Olympics Alberta athletes during this long period of pause in their in person programming. Your support is helping us develop and run virtual programming! Besides all the good feels, each registrant will also receive an automatic electronic $25 tax receipt and your registration-level incentive (a sweet Polar Plunge face mask) PLUS a $5 Tim Hortons gift card mailed to you within a couple weeks of registering! You also have the opportunity to win some incredible fundraising incentive prizes every week thanks to Mr. Lube. REGISTRATION With the ability to plunge virtually this year, you can now participate from anywhere! We’re so excited to have you join us and, as always, creativity is highly encouraged, whether via costumes or virtual plunge ideas!
