Trust us! It will be the coolest thing you do all year....

How many people can be on a team?
A minimum of 3 plungers are needed to make a team. The maximum number is unlimited.

I don't want to register online can I still plunge?
You can register offline by calling Beth Teegarden @ 615.329.1375 or downloading the registration form at and mailing it to Special Olympics Tennessee.

I don't want to raise money online. Can't I just ask people to donate to me?
Yes you may raise funds offline on behalf of Special Olympics Tennessee. You may bring those collected funds and turn them in on the day of the plunge or you can bring/mail them in to Special Olympics Tennessee office.

I am registering my team online. Does every team member have to register?
Yes, every plunger must register.

Does every team member have to raise the plunge minimum?
Yes, EACH plunger must raise the minimum amount for the plunge.

Can our team have one online fundraising page for the whole team?
Yes you will have that option when you setup your online fundraising. 

Can I give some of my fundraising to someone who didn't reach the minimum?
Yes. At the plunge check-in they can handle that for you. Be aware that could affect the level of fundraising incentive you qualify for. Ex. If you raise over $500 and qualify for that fundraising level and then give $100 to another plunger than you will then qualify for the fundraising level below $500.

What happens if there is bad weather?
The Plunge will take place as long as it is safe for the plungers. If there is a change to the schedule, we will post the information on the homepage of There is no rain date.
