Support Special Olympics Indiana by joining the fun of the Polar Plunge and After Splash Bash at Versailles State Park. The Versailles Plunge is one of eighteen Plunges around the state. Last year’s event drew more than 300 Plungers and spectators. The tenth annual Versailles Plunge promises all the chills and thrills that Plungers have come to know and love. Join us for this extreme fundraising event for the warm at heart.

Participants must raise a “bear” minimum of $75 to take a daring dip into Versailles State Park’s winter waters. All funds raised by the event benefit Special Olympics Indiana.

The Versailles’ Plunge features a HUGE heated festival tent with great entertainment, the Plunge Food Court, the Razzle Dazzle Basket Raffle, face painting, games, and more.

Why do it…

All proceeds from this event benefit Special Olympics Indiana athletes in our community, giving them the means to train locally and to compete at the state level in a number of Olympic-type sports.

 

Plunging with a team is even cooler!

You don’t have to be an official organization to create a team. Just have your family and friends join you for the big splash. A team is any group of 10 to 20 members that wants to Plunge together, but only teams of 10 or more that have raised the minimum of $75 per team member will be eligible for team prizes. Team are encouraged to preregister.
