As frost coats the ground and the crisp scent of winter fills the air, we look forward to our favorite frosty weather tradition: Polar Plunge!

That’s right—Washington’s Winter Beach Party is BACK and we invite you to show your support by joining us at waterfronts all across Washington State for this annual tradition!

Whether you choose to brave the plunge and get cold for a cause or simply show up to cheer others on, the 2024 Polar Plunge has something for everyone. And don’t forget to dress up—each Polar Plunge features a costume contest with fun prizes for both individual and team costumes!

By joining in the fun, you’ll be supporting Special Olympics Washington’s Beyond Gold initiative that will help us offer more life-changing, inclusive programs to reach even more individuals with IDD across our state. Your participation will help empower our athletes to shatter stereotypes and exceed their personal bests on and off the playing field.

Don’t miss out on our favorite winter beach party! Sign up to attend a Polar Plunge near you and help us reach our 2024 Polar Plunge fundraising goal of $225,000. Time is of the essence, and we can’t wait to welcome you there!

IMPORTANT: Event shirts are not guaranteed unless you raise a minimum of $50 at least 30 days before your event.
