Take the Plunge 2018!

Dare yourself this 2018 with an invigorating challenge to raise money for Special Olympics Delaware! Hit the beach on February 4th at 1 pm for a cold dip. Joined by hundreds of other participating plungers you’ll feel the rush of the freezing cold Atlantic and satisfaction of making a difference together.

Not only will you be accountable for a fun-filled exhilarating leap into the ocean, but your participation will raise funds for those with disabilities who suffer countless barriers throughout life. The Special Olympics movement helps to inspire those with disabilities and give them the opportunities to learn and compete athletically like everyone else. It brings together a community of people dedicated to helping others feel empowered and expanding their resources.

Not loving the idea of jumping into the freezing cold water, come on by to watch all of the action and support those braving it out. Other activities will include a chili contest, ice sculpting demonstrations and other fun winter activities for the community.

Preceding plunge festivities is a 5k Run to the Plunge, where participants will meet on the avenue of Rehoboth and end along the boardwalk to gear up for the ultimate rush of excitement.
