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 off your Christmas season as we have plenty of festive cheer at our plunge locations. 

When and Where?
There are six locations for the 2016 Polar Plunge: Donegal (Rathmullan), Cork (National Maritime College, Ringaskiddy). Galway (Salthill)
Dublin (The 40ft), Wexford (Rosslare Strand), and Louth (Clogherhead)*.

*Please note the Polar Plunge previously announced for Belfast will now take place in 2017. Special Olympics Ireland apologise for any inconvenience caused. Revised details will be announced in due course.

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.
