Seattle Polar Plunge 2019

Calendar/Event Details

Every winter, Special Olympics Washington hosts one of the season’s biggest parties: Polar Plunge! This year in Seattle, we’re going for the Guinness World Record. Be one of 2,000 plungers on Alki Beach on February 23rd, from 9:00-3:00, for a fun-filled day both in and out of the water.

Anyone can participate! 

(Under 18 requires parent or guardian signature.) 

Fun Plunge:

Special Olympics Washington has applied to break the Guinness World Record for Largest Polar Plunge! To qualify, one of Guinness’ requirements is that all who plunge must be in swimwear. The heart of our organization is inclusion. If you do not feel comfortable plunging in a swimsuit we still encourage you to come down to Alki Beach on February 9th where we will have a separate Fun Plunge. For the Fun Plunge – which will be separate from and not count toward the world record attempt – costumes IN the water will be encouraged and allowed! With food trucks, a winter beer festival, music and more, whether you stay on the beach or take the plunge, you’ll have a great time in or out of the water. Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at Alki!
