Slide down a 95-foot-long, 36-foot-high inflatable slide into a pool of ice-cold water.
500 Ala Moana Blvd, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813
The 10th annual Polar Plunge is returning for an action-packed weekend of high-sliding thrills, all to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics Hawaiʻi. The action is set for Saturday, April 6, 2019, and challenges participants to plunge down a 95-foot long, 36-foot high inflatable slide into a pool of ice-cold water, on the lawn of Waterfront Plaza fronting Ala Moana Boulevard.
Registration is now open online at http://give.classy.org/2019plungehi.
Plunging begins at 9 a.m. and continues every hour until noon. The annual event is open to individuals, families, community groups, sports teams, student groups and anyone else who wants to take the plunge to support Special Olympics athletes.
All plungers are asked to raise a minimum $100 donation for Special Olympics Hawaiʻi. Passionate plungers, who raise $500 or more, will receive mahalo gifts and can plunge up to six times. There is a reduced fundraising goal of $50 for students of all ages, elementary through college.
Those looking to up their chill factor can become Super Plungers and plunge 12 times in six hours in an above ground pool of ice water. Super Plungers are asked to reach a fundraising goal of $1,000 or more and will receive complimentary breakfast, lunch, refreshments, parking, mahalo gifts and more.
