On Saturday, March 3rd, Special Olympics Arizona will host its 10th Annual Tucson Polar Plunge. Special Olympics athletes, families, friends and fans will all be "Freezin' for a Reason" in support of athletes living in southern Arizona!

The Tucson Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations and businesses to support Coronado Area athletes by plunging into the icy winter waters of the Highland Vista Pool. Whether you take the plunge yourself, or just come out to cheer on your friends, you can be a part of the coolest event in town! There will be music, food and costumes, all for a great cause.

Prizes will be awarded to the top fundraisers and those plunging in the best costumes. Plungers raising $100 or more will receive a raffle ticket for every $100 they raise. This year's grand prize is a Samsung Galaxy 16GB 8" Tablet.  The drawing will also include several gift cards/certificates and other prizes. 

You don't have to risk hypothermia to be a Polar Plunge participant. In fact, we need as many warm hearts as brave souls in order to have a successful event. Bring your friends, family and supporters to join in the fun!
