2022 Super Plunge

Friday, March 18th – Saturday, March 19th

Our 2022 Super Plungers are hard at work on their fundraising and we are looking for new team members to experience our most challenging cold water event! If plunging into the frigid waters of the Chesapeake Bay seems like cake, don't worry because Super Plungers do it 24 times in 24 hours. Start your Super Plunge journey by filling out our interest form or donate to a Super Plunger using the links below.

The Polar Bear Plunge is part of Maryland's history. For the past 25 years, thousands of plungers have jumped into the icy waters of the Chesapeake Bay all in support of Special Olympics Maryland. Your dedication to our 6,102 athletes is impactful and has created countless inclusion experiences across the state of Maryland. Help us reach our goal of $3.5 million this year and register for the 2022 Plunge!
