Testing This!


The Polar Plunge a/k/a/ Polar Bear Plunge, consists of brave souls who raise money by “plunging” into icy water in the middle of winter – for some it is a winter tradition!  Why so crazy?  The funds raised help Kansans with intellectual disabilities achieve greatness in inclusive communities across Kansas.  The Polar Plunge is a unique experience with music, food, and most of all fun.

Part of the fun of the Polar Plunge is the Challenge.  We Double Bear Dare Ya! to make this a spectacular Plunge Season for Special Olympics Kansas
