Don’t Want To Plunge But Still Make A Splash?

The Virtual Polar Pop Is Back…And, you can designate your support locally after registering for a Polar Plunge!

Take the Virtual Polar Pop by pledging to raise funds, participating in the ‘Pop,’ and sharing your Polar Pop pictures and videos using the hashtag associated with your selected plunge! 

Participants pop a cold water balloon over their heads. Every “Pop” will help support sports training and competition in YOUR community.



Don’t Feel Like Plunging OR Popping?

Stay on dry land and still make a difference! Register as a "Too Chicken” and raise a minimum of $50 in donations to receive an event t-shirt. Join a team, start a team, or fly solo!

As a “Too Chicken” plunger, you can also setup an individual fundraising page to raise even more money for our athletes! The choice is yours! When you raise $250 or more, you qualify for extra incentives!

Our “Too Chicken” plungers are welcome to join us on plunge day. PLEASE NOTE: Spectator space may be limited due to Covid-19 mitigation rules and local regulations. Please check this website for updates as plunge day draws nearer.
