Encourage your friends & family to register by December 31 to skip the registration fee. But don't worry about fundraising just yet! Our fundraising resources will launch in January and you can hit the ground running to gather donations and earn incentives.
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.
You can participate in the 5K or 10K, the Polar Plunge, or both!
The 5K/10K are timed runs along the Bay with scenic views of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. Runners in the 5K and 10K 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.
