We are sorry to say that due to the hazardous conditions and excessive debris currently present at the plunge site, current lack of power at our plunge luncheon location, and under advice of the Office of Emergency Services discouraging all non-essential travel for the next few days, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the physical plunge and party.
We encourage you to continue to collect your donations online or by using the offline form through March 18, and save that costume for next year’s event that will be better than ever!
Incentives will be mailed or personally delivered to all participants, and awards will be presented for highest individual and highest team contributions. If you are a return participant, please look for a collage of previous events to be posted on the Lake County Special Olympics Facebook page.
Thank you for your continued support of our local program. We could not do it without your help!

Join us for the Lake County Polar Plunge on Saturday, February 25, at Lakeside County Park. All proceeds benefit Special Olympics Northern California to provide free year-round sports and competition opportunities for children and adults with intellectual disabilities in the LakeTuolumne County community.
Your participation will directly support our inclusive sports, health, schools and leadership programs for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Through Special Olympics, our athletes build friendships, overcome obstacles and are empowered to realize their full potential. Success on the field leads to more opportunities in daily life as the community learns about the unique abilities and contributions of our athletes. All Special Olympics programs are provided at no cost to the athletes and their families thanks to your support.
The Polar Plunge is an iconic tradition in Special Olympics in which brave supporters take a chilly winter dip to show their dedication for our athletes. Our Plunge is a family event and costumes are encouraged! You'll have a blast and feel good knowing that the funds you raise will help us change lives.
