THANK YOU TO ALL PARTICIPANTS!  DONATIONS ARE STILL BEING ACCEPTED.  IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO EARN PLUNGE INCENTIVE GIFTS!


Join us for the San Francisco 5K & Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics Northern California on Saturday, March 26, at Aquatic Park

The family-friendly event will begin with a scenic 5K fun-run along the Bay with beautiful views of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. Walkers, runners and families are welcome. Registration is $45 for the 5K and includes a commemorative medal.  

Following the 5K, make a splash with hundreds of costumed friends for the iconic Polar Plunge into the Bay. Plungers can dive in all the way, just dip in and out, or stay completely dry and still enjoy the experience. Every Plunger must raise a minimum of $125 and will receive a Polar Plunge t-shirt and breakfast or lunch from the mouth watering food truck Bacon Bacon.  Cool School participants must raise a minimum of $50 to Plunge but must raise a minimum of $125 to earn the t-shirt and meal.  Additional fundraising is encouraged and incentives are available. 

Special Olympics supporters may choose to do just the 5K, the Polar Plunge, or both! Funds raised directly support Special Olympics Northern California programs in sports, schools, health and leadership. Register today and make a difference for thousands of children and adults with intellectual disabilities as we return to the playing field together!

Why Participate?

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. 

What can you Expect?

You can participate in the 5K, the Polar Plunge, or both!

The 5K is a family-friendly fun-run along the Bay with scenic views of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. Walkers, children, strollers and dogs are welcome. 5K participants receive a commemorative medal.

The Polar Plunge is an iconic tradition in Special Olympics in which brave supporters take a chilly winter dip to show their dedication for athletes. Our Plunge is held at Aquatic Park and costumes are encouraged! A Polar Plunge t-shirt and meal is included in your $125 fundraising minimum.

Thanks to our generous sponsors
