Polar Plunge Bend

February 15, 2014

Registration for the 2014 Bend Polar Plunge is closed online. However, you can still register and donate! You may register at the Fred Meyer Pre Check in Friday, February 14 or at the Polar Plunge event on Saturday, February 15.

The Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support Special Olympics Oregon athletes by jumping, walking or slowly crawling into the frigid and icy Oregon waters. The event is open to the public, and all spectators are welcome free of charge. The best way to plunge is with a team! Get your friends, family members, co-workers and boss to take the plunge with you. Plus, there are some major incentives waiting for those who raise the most money!

Every participant must raise a minimum of $50 for the privilege of taking a wintry dip in an icy body of water in February and will receive a commemorative long-sleeve t-shirt and a bowl of soup, plus bragging rights!

The Bend Polar Plunge is a proud part of the Oregon Winterfest. For more information, visit
