Prince William County, VA… Registration is open for the 2021 Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics Virginia. This year's event, which culminates on Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021, will look a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but participants can still have a fantastic time supporting a great cause.
This February, the Polar Plunge will look a little different. The Police Department asks participants to take the plunge in their own hands. Plunge Week will be February 1-6, 2021, with a virtual celebration on Feb. 6, 2021.
Be creative! Sing in the shower, relax in the hot tub, or go old school and jump in some icy water indoors or out. Share your pictures or video on social media, using the hashtag #plungeyourway for a chance to be featured. Plunge Week will have fun challenges each day including a virtual costume contest and giveaways at favorite local hotspots. The celebration will wrap on Feb. 6, 2020, with a Facebook Live event.
Registration is open, and the public is invited to participate in two ways:
- Take "the Plunge" virtually, either as an individual or as a team that you put together with friends, neighbors, family or co-workers.
