Polar Plunge Rathmullan

Get Freezin for a Reason this February! Special Olympics Ireland has been running the Annual Polar Plunge for 20 years in collaboration with the Law Enforcement Torch Run to raise funds to support Special Olympics athletes in communities across the country.

We are so excited to have one extra Polar Plunge event to take place in Rathmullan, Donegal. Our long-term charity partner, Gala Retail, is kindly supporting the Polar Plunge once again to make it bigger and better than ever!

Ready to take on the challenge?

Special Olympics Ireland is calling on you, to take on the Polar Plunge this February and to get Freezin for a Reason! The Polar Plunge is open to all, whether you are a swimmer, pandemic dipper or just fancy a challenge or a fun festive event.

When are events taking place?

There is one more event taking place in beautiful Rathmullan, Co. Donegal this February following our December events before Christmas

Once you sign up you’ll receive a registration pack and an invite to the Polar Plunge Facebook Group

Everyone who donates or fundraises a minimum of €25 will receive a Polar Plunge T-shirt on the day.

I have a couple more questions, who can I ask?
