How big a splash can we make
in 2014? Details coming soon »
Thank you to the 2013 Plungers who worked hard to collect $464,000 in pledges for Special Olympics Oregon!
It's what happens when thousands of people around Oregon run into icy cold water to raise money for Special Olympics Oregon. As a "plunger" you register to participate in one of the five plunges around the state. Maybe you join a team. Maybe not. Then you raise a minimum of $50 in pledges from friends and family (but the more you raise, the bigger your incentive prizes). Then on plunge day you run or jump into the water and get out as fast as you can. You decide how far you want to go in. It's all done for fun and to raise money for a great cause.
