Each winter - on the 1st Saturday in February, brave fun-loving folks gather for a great cause to support Special Olympics Virginia (SOVA) by taking part in the annual Polar Plunge. Over the years, 'The Plunge" has taken on a life of it's own. The Costume Contest is 2nd to none. Local radio stations The Fox 106.9 www.1069thefox.com and FM-99 www.fm99.com along with News Channel-3 WTKR www.wtkr.com help promote this special event each year. If you'd like to get in on the fun, please visit the website: www.polarplunge.com and www.specialolympicsva.org for more information... johncadell@verizon.net . Thank you for your interest in Special Olympics.


I have helped cover this annual get-together for the past 10 years. All proceeds made on this website from the Special Olympics page are donated to Special Olympics Virginia to help raise funds for this worthy cause. I have a fairly extensive library of images from the past Plunges. Please contact me via email if you would like to check the library for a specific individual or group image.
