Opening Ceremonies begin at 11:45 AM with the Polar Plunge to begin immediately after.
How Your Donation Helps
Every dollar raised through the Big Bear Polar Plunge will help fund Special Olympics Inland Empire programs. Special Olympics is more than a sports organization, free health screenings, nutrition and wellness programs, and leadership opportunities give athletes with intellectual disabilities a healthier lifestyle and brighter future.
All Special Olympics programs are free to the athletes and their families. When people with and without intellectual disabilities connect on the sports field, hearts and minds are opened and barriers are broken down.
