Chill Out You Got This!

Jump in. The 2018 Polar Plunge takes place Feb. 2–3. Register now.

Are you ready to take an ice-cold dip into the Atlantic Ocean with several thousand of the coolest Special Olympics supporters in Virginia? Then grab your best costume and favorite flip flops for the Virginia Beach Polar Plunge® Festival, Feb. 2–3 at the Hilton Oceanfront Hotel.

Not to mention, the icy dip into the frosty Atlantic Ocean with 3,000 of your closest friends. Plus, join us for a NEW post-Plunge party at the Hyatt’s Ocean 27 with music, food and drink specials to celebrate being an all-star fundraiser for Special Olympics Virginia! It’s an all-day party and it’s all for a great cause.

It’s $100 to Plunge, but the top five teams that raise the most money by midnight before the Plunge will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win four free airline vouchers to anywhere in the United States. Teams and individuals also can earn warm towels, hotel vouchers, priority check-in, a star on the boardwalk and a brand new VIP experience under the main heated tent!

Ready to brrr-ave the wave? Team up and register at or call our Virginia Beach office, 757-962-1575, for more details.

Bringing the kids? Don’t forget about the Cool School Challenge, which kicks off Friday morning at 10:30 a.m. and features students in grades 3–12 taking the icy dip for a cool cause.

Want to volunteer? It takes hundreds of COOL people to make this event happen, so if the icy dip isn’t for you, sign up to volunteer at
