The Philadelphia Suburban Plunge (Cool School Plunge) is a friendly competition between high schools in Montgomery, Bucks, and Chester Counties. Students and staff are encouraged to create a team of “Plungers” and join the coolest event around! Your school’s team should work together to recruit as many participants as possible while raising money and awareness for Special Olympic athletes – including those in your own school!
When students arrive, they partake in an educational component around inclusion and Special Olympics in a heated tent. After a quick warm-up, it’s time to be #FreezinForAReason. Everyone will take the Plunge in our above ground pool. After the plunge, students can change in a heated locker room and then partake in a fun activity back in the heated tent to defrost and wait for their bus to pick them up.
***Students should come to the Philly Suburban Plunge with their plunge outfits underneath their clothes.***
