As Special Olympics Indiana’s signature fundraising event, the Polar Plunge everyone to be “freezin’ for a reason” and “take the plunge” for adults and children with intellectual disabilities.

For the last decade, brave souls and warm hearts have jumped into bodies of water in February to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Indiana. Special Olympics Indiana will hold 11 Polar Plunge events throughout the state, including one for the sixth year in a row at Versailles State Park lake.

In order to plunge, participants must raise a minimum of $75. Awards are given for those who raise the most funds for Special Olympics Indiana. This wet and wacky event also includes prizes for the best costume, incentives for dollars raised and an After Splash Bash.

Register for the plunge at http://soindiana.org/special-events/polar-plunge/2013-versailles-polar-plunge/.

The Versailles Polar Plunge features a large heated tent, food and various vendors, music and more. Also featured at the Versailles location is the Polar Climb; a 3K walk and 5K run through the scenic hills and woods of Versailles State Park that will take you to a spectacular view of Versailles Lake, the official Plunge site.
Walk registration is 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. near the boat ramp. A minimum of $35 in pledges is needed to participate. Run/walk starts at 11 a.m. First 100 receive an official Polar Climb T-shirt. Register at www.stuartroadracing.com.
