Bring on the cold! Registration is open for the Cedar Falls/Waterloo Polar Plunge to be held Saturday, April 8 at George Wyth State Park. The Polar Plunge is a signature fundraiser for Special Olympics and offers a unique opportunity for individuals and organizations to raise money and support Special Olympics Iowa athletes by plunging into frigid waters.

There is a way for everyone to be involved plunge solo, plunge as a team, toss your boss, sponsor an individual or team, the corporate challenge or volunteer at the event. If you are too chicken to plunge, you can register to raise funds and receive a T-shirt and other prizes.

Each plunger or chicken must raise a minimum of $75. Immediately following the Plunge there will be a post-party where participants can stay warm and enjoy food, drinks, music, a silent auction and drawings.
