The Polar Plunge signature fundraiser is an exhilarating event held each winter to support Indiana’s Special Olympics athletes, where individuals and teams brave the elements by taking an icy dip to demonstrate their commitment to the cause. Support Special Olympics Indiana by joining the fun of the Polar Plunge and After Splash Bash at Versailles State Park. This extreme fundraising event is for the warm at heart. The Versailles’ Plunge features a HUGE heated festival tent with great entertainment, the Plunge Food Court, the Razzle Dazzle Basket Raffle, face painting, games, and more. The day’s activities also include the Polar Climb 5K Run and 3K Walk. 

Participants must raise a “bear” minimum of $75 ($50 minimum for students with a student I.D.) to take a daring dip into Indiana’s winter waters. Participants must be at least 12 years old on the day of the Plunge—those under the age of 18 must have a signature from a parent or guardian. All funds raised across Indiana by these events directly benefit more than 16,000 Special Olympics athletes throughout the state, giving them the means to train locally and compete at the state level in a number of Olympic-type sports. Reg Fee.
