*2015 Update - There are some big changes coming to the Nashville Plunge. Check back November 1st to hear the big announcement.


Come and join hundreds of brave individuals on Saturday, February 15th 2014, and support Special Olympics Tennessee athletes by running into the chilly waters of Percy Priest Lake at Nashville Shores (map).

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).
