Fox47 is proud to support the 2021 Polar Plunge and the Special Olympics of Wisconsin

This year's Polar Plunge will look a little different. Due to the pandemic, the Special Olympics of Wisconsin will be offering supporters and frozen fundraisers four safe ways to participate in their premiere winter fundraiser.

Option 1 is The Great Outdoors, include 'plunging' down a ski hill in a tube or sled, snowshoeing and more. Fox47 is proud to support The Great Outdoors location on Saturday, February 13 at Tyrol Basin!

Option 2 is Chillin' at Home, allows participants to get creative by doing a DIY Polar Plunge then enjoying a curated cozy kit full of goodies.

You can complete your at-home Plunge whenever and however you like! Creativity is key!

Here are some ideas to you get started!

Add a bucket of ice water to your favorite TikTok dance

Take the Plunge into a bathtub full of ice

Take a kiddie pool Plunge in your backyard

Dump an iced beverage from your favorite coffee shop on your head

Swimsuit snow angels

Winter water balloon fight

Option 3 is Cool Schools, with students can virtually hang out with friends by forming teams, holding competitions and having fun in the spirit of inclusion.

Option 4 is Support an Adventurer, allows fans to support Polar Plunge participants while making a difference in the lives of children and adults wiht intellectual disabilities.

Regardless of the adventure path, funds raised from the Polar Plunge makes a year-long impact to Special Olympics.
