The 20th Annual Polar Bear Plunge….Join hundreds of brave souls (including some local celebrities!) at Mud Island River Park to take a dip into the frigid Wolf River, as they brave the elements to benefit Special Olympics of Greater Memphis.
The plunge is at 2:30 p.m. and everyone MUST wear shoes, fill out the waiver/release, and pay the $50 per person/team member entry fee. With just $50 in pledges, Plungers automatically get the official Polar Bear Plunge t-shirt and bragging rights over all the people who couldn't bear it. Plus, the more money Plungers raise, the more cool stuff they can get!
Come early to take care of business and vote in the People’s Choice portion of the Chili Cook-Off!
