Virtual Polar Plunge & Frozen 5K (new in 2021) Registration Open – Virtual
Jan 28 all-day
Virtual Polar Plunge & Frozen 5K (new in 2021) Registration Open - Virtual

Registration is open now for the first-ever virtual Michigan Law Enforcement Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Michigan!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Michigan’s beloved cold water challenge series is shifting to an all-virtual event for the 2021 season. But just because the format has changed, doesn’t mean the excitement, fun or importance of the event has to.

So, what exactly is a “virtual” Polar Plunge? Participants will still register online, raise money for Special Olympics Michigan’s life-changing programs, do a cold weather challenge and earn cool swag along the way. The main difference is that, instead of hitting the water at a traditional Plunge location, now the choice is up to you on where, when and how you want to get bold and cold for the athletes of Special Olympics Michigan.

Do snow angels in your swimsuit. Lounge in a cold water-filled kiddie pool in your backyard. Have a water balloon or squirt gun fight while wearing Halloween costumes. Have a family member spray you with a water hose or splash you with a bucket of cold water. Get as creative as you want and have fun with it!

Participants can also sign up to be a part of the first-ever Frozen 5K. Sign up, choose your course and send us your times when you’re done. In return, we’ll send you your choice of a Sport-Tek or heather cotton long sleeve shirt.

To register, visit PlungeMI.com before February 28, 2021 and sign up. Participate by yourself or as a team with friends, family or co-workers. Raise a minimum of $100 to receive a free 2021 Polar Plunge crewneck sweatshirt; raise more money and earn additional Polar Plunge swag including fleece blankets, jogger pants, bags, coats and more!

The Polar Plunge series raises more than $1 million for Special Olympics Michigan each year, with 2020 being a banner year that saw a record $1.37 million raised. This unwavering support from Michigan residents, businesses and Law Enforcement members is crucial to helping provide inclusive sports, health and school programs for nearly 23,000 participants all across Michigan.
