Countdown is on for the Myrtle Beach Polar Plunge
Saturday, January 30, 2021 | Sands Ocean Club Resort | 10 AM
Take The Plunge!
The Myrtle Beach Polar Plunge is an annual event full of fun that helps to raise funds for the Special Olympics of South Carolina.
Held at the beach in front of the Sands Ocean Club, to participate in the Polar Plunge Myrtle Beach event, you just need to raise a minimum of $50 and complete a waiver form.
By “Freezin’ for a Reason” you’re creating more opportunities for determined athletes to experience the life-changing benefits of participating in the Special Olympics.
Make a splash for a great cause!
Due to Coronavirus, the 2021 plunge will be very different than past years. In order to practice safety for all, the following guidelines must be followed:
- Social distancing of at least 6 feet is required.
- Face coverings are required at all times.
- “Heads UP Plunge” – Plungers to keep heads above the water for added safety.
- “Plunge & Go” events – Plungers will report to an outdoor registration table, plunge, and go.
Visit Classy to start fundraising. Register as an individual or form a team!
Virtual plunges are an option this year, so when registering, you will be asked whether you will be plunging in person or virtually.
Virtual plungers can be creative and post a photo or video of their virtual plunge on Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok – use the hashtag #polarplungesc
To participate in the event, you just need to raise a minimum of $50 and complete a Waiver Form.
*Waiver forms will also be available at the event. Waivers are not necessary for virtual plunges.
Ask your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers if they’d like to contribute to your fundraising goal or donate to support your team.
Have fun at the “Plunge and Go!” event, or get creative with your own “Virtual Plunge”! Then, post a photo or video on Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok – use the hashtag #polarplungesc.
Each “Plunger” earns incentives based on the total amount of contributions they have successfully raised: $50, $250, $500, and up. If you raise $250 or more, let us know right away so that we can have prizes ready for you on the day of the event!
Specify your tee shirt size through the online registration – to be guaranteed a tee shirt at the Myrtle Beach event on plunge day, you must be registered at least two weeks in advance. For virtual plungers, arrangements can be made for tee shirt pick-up or delivery to your home.
