Polar Plunge: Nashville

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

2019 Polar Plunge Nashville information coming soon!

Welcome to the MUSIC CITY POLAR PLUNGE Home Page.  We're looking forward to another year of Freezin' for a Reason!

Come and join hundreds of brave individuals on Saturday, February 17th 2018, and support Special Olympics Tennessee athletes by taking a chilly dip into our pool at Nissan Stadium. With a minimum of $75  in donations ($50 for students) each plunger receives the official long-sleeved Plunge t-shirt, Chili Cook-off ticket, and all bragging rights associated with such a brave endeavor.

It's easy to participate! Just follow these 3 steps:

Step 1. You need to register online or complete the registration form and mail to Special Olympics Tennessee.

Step 2. Begin collecting donations to support your plunge. Use the donation form or create a Personal Online Fundraising page (just think your own personal webpage...you're famous). Each plunger must raise a minimum $75 to plunge.

Step 3. Bring all offline collected donations to the Plunge on February 17th. Current online fundraising totals will be available at registration.
