The Polar Bear Plunge is part of Maryland's history. For the past 25 years, thousands of plungers have jumped into the icy waters of the Chesapeake Bay all in support of Special Olympics Maryland. Your dedication to our 8,716 athletes is impactful and has created countless inclusion experiences across the state of Maryland. While we originally had a different vision for celebrating our 25th anniversary, the health and safety of our community is our top priority. We are excited to say that the 2021 Polar Bear Plunge will go on! Help us reach our goal of $3 million this year and register for the 2021 Plunge, today!
