Polar Bear Plunge - Cool Schools Plunge

More than 10,000 people from across the state will plunge into the chilly Chesapeake Bay at Sandy Point State Park raising money for Special Olympics Maryland. The Polar Bear Plunge is the largest state-wide fundraiser with four different plunges to participate in, including the Cool Schools Plunge (10 a.m.) on Thursday, January 25th, Police and Corporate Plunge on Friday, January 26th (2 p.m.), and the Polar Bear Plunge on Saturday, January 27th (11 a.m.). This Plungefest is more than jumping into cold water. There will be live music, a VIP suite, activities for all ages, and the satisfaction of freezing your fur off to benefit a great cause. Are you brave enough to take a dip into the 30-degree bay? Come find out and celebrate 22 years of the “coolest” Maryland tradition. A pledge of $75 or more is required.
