If each plunger raised $500 each, the 2020 Polar Plunge would be the most successful EVER!

Your pledges help Special Olympics athletes across Nova Scotia train hard, achieve their personal best and build an incredible community around them of coaches, volunteers and fellow athletes. Some of these amazing athletes just returned from the National Winter Games in Thunder Bay!
