|The 4th Annual Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics Massachusetts is not your average dip! It is an exciting (and cool) fundraising event that takes place every winter.
Here is how it works:|
1. Each Plunger should register in advance of the event through the website www.PolarPlungeMA.org. This helps make the on-site registration process run much more smoothly. However, walk-on plungers are also welcome as long as they have collected their pledges before the start of the event.
2. Once registered, Plungers raise money (a minimum of $100), through the collection of donations from friends, family, co-workers, fundraising event, etc. Each registered Plunger is given a free Polar Plunge website. Plungers can accept donations right on their web page, and use it to spread the news about how cool their friends and family can feel about participating in the Plunge - as donors or other Plungers!
3. On the day of the Plunge, all Plungers will check in starting at 11 AM. At that time, they will turn in any checks or cash they have collected.
4. At 11:30, it's time to plunge! Volunteers will be on hand to direct Plungers and assist as needed as everyone takes a quick mid-winter dip!
Event History: The Polar Plunge (previously the Passion Plunge) was established in 1999 as a fundraiser for Special Olympics Massachusetts. So far, our Plungers have worked together to raise over $3.2 million for the Athletes of Special Olympics Massachusetts.
