Special Olympics Polar Plunge Season is coming again this December!

Do you dare to join us? Last year our events were over subscribed so make sure you sign up early!

Organised by Special Olympics Ireland and the Law Enforcement Torch Run Committee we are calling on you to take part in this "hilarious" event in aid of Special Olympics. 

What is the Polar Plunge?
The Polar Plunge dares you to jump into freezing cold water, hence the name Freezin' for a Reason!
Not only do you get the chance to re-invigorate your body but it's a great way to kick of your Christmas season as we have plenty of festive cheer at our plunge locations. 

See below for locations and dates.

As of Friday 21st October the Online Polar Plunge Registration Process will be suspended to facilitate maintenance and will be available online again on Tuesday 1st November

Simply click on the sign up link for your preferred event

Why take part?
We currently provide a comprehensive sports training programme for over 9,000 athletes in 385 clubs across Ireland. The benefits of training and competing in our clubs goes way beyond the taking part. Social skills, fitness, friendship, community and family life are all improved as a result of an athlete being involved in our clubs. In addition we also run Athlete Leadership, Family Support and Volunteer programmes.   
Please check out some of our athletes stories here to see what Special Olympics means to them and their families.
