Polar Plunge: Nashville
Register Now

Trust us! It will be the coolest thing you do all year....


After discussions with the city, EMT and Weather services we have decided to postpone this Saturday's Music City Polar Plunge‚Äč.  Friday afternoon's forecast for 1-3 inches of snow and sleet during our event set-up and the possibility of it continuing into the morning made this decision necessary. We are disappointed that we have to postpone but feel the safety of our volunteers, plungers and vendors is paramount.

The event will be held next Saturday February 28th.  Location and event times will be the same. We are hopeful that all our participants and volunteers can still participate. 

Come and join hundreds of brave individuals on Saturday, February 28th 2015, and support Special Olympics Tennessee athletes by taking a chilly dip into our pool at LP Field. With a minimum of $75  in donations ($50 for students) each plunger receives the official long-sleeved Plunge t-shirt, complimentary lunch, two passes for the Celebration Party and all bragging rights associated with such a brave endeavor.

It's easy to participate! Just follow these 3 steps:

Step 1. You need to register online or complete the registration form and mail to Special Olympics Tennessee.

Step 2. Begin collecting donations to support your plunge. Use the donation form or create a Personal Online Fundraising page (just think your own personal webpage...you're famous). Each plunger must raise a minimum $75 to plunge.

Step 3. Bring all offline collected donations to the Plunge on February 28th. Current online fundraising totals will be available at registration.

Did you Say Pool?

Yes, for the first time we will be jumping into our own portable plunge pool at the LP Field parking lot.  Our friends at Special Olympics Kentucky have been doing this for years so we added a few pictures from their plunge to let you see what you're getting into....literally!
