Special Olympics West Virginia will be conducting five Polar Plunges in 2017.  Pick the one nearest you, or dare yourself to participate in all five and be among the truly elite plungers.  Regardless, you will enjoy the thrill and excitement that surround each of the events.

Each participant must raise a minimum of $50 for the privilege to plunge, and the more money participants raise the more prizes they receive.  The money generated from the Polar Plunges enables thousands of Special Olympics West Virginia athletes to have opportunities for year-round sports training and competition.  You may download the Pledge Form and Release Form below (all participants must sign a release, and if under age 18, the release must be signed by a parent or guardian).  We hope to see you at one of the following Polar Plunges where it promises to be a memorable adventure and offers you the chance to be Freezin' for a Reason!

Several of our Special Olympics West Virginia athletes were on hand at Smoke Hole Resort to enthusiastically welcome the Dream Riders to West Virginia.  The riders, who were participating in a week long journey from Florida to Connecticut in support of Special Olympics, traveled through and stayed overnight in our state for the first time.  Our athletes had a wonderful meet and greet session with the riders, during which the riders presented all of the athletes with Dream Ride shirts and medals in celebration of the athletes accomplishments in Special Olympics.  Dream Ride also made a donation in support of our athletes.  It was a heartwarming and spirited occasion for all involved.

Dream Ride, which started as a small motorcycle ride and rally, has evolved into an event involving thousands of motorcycle and auto enthusiasts spanning into 12 states and raising millions of dollars for the Special Olympics movement.
