The Tucson Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations and businesses to support Coronado Area athletes by leaping 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 Leap Year event in town! There will be music, food and costumes, all for a great cause.

Each plunger must raise a "bear" minimum of $25 in order to take the plunge and receive a commemorative 2020 Polar Plunge t-shirt.
