Polar Plunge Series Presented By Westerra Credit Union

Special Olympics Colorado Polar Plunge presented by Westerra Credit Union is a fun and unique way to help support athletes with intellectual disabilities!

Challenge yourself by jumping into a cold body of water (either a pool or reservoir) and challenge your family and friends to support you with donations that directly benefit SOCO athletes.

Great news! If you’re a local program, the plunge is a great way to raise funds for your team. Click on the Local Program Revenue Sharing Flyer to learn how to get started!

Gear Up!  Visit the Polar Plunge Store to get your plunge gear and come in style!
