Over 1,000 plungers took to the chilly Atlantic Ocean on January 11th for the annual Polar Bear Plunge in Wildwood, NJ. 

The start to the 2020 plunge season brought in over $330,000 to support Special Olympics New Jersey athletes around the state. The top fundraising teams lead the way, including AlohAvengers who lead from the very beginning of registration!

Not only did plungers raise incredible amounts of money, but they also refused to let the frigid water and windy skies dampen their spirits and costumes! Outfits ranged from Jelly Fish, Vikings, 80’s-themed, Where’s Waldo, Batman Villains, and USA-themed! 


Thank you to the NJ Law Enforcement Torch Run, New Jersey Fraternal Order of Police, the City of Wildwood, The Wildwoods Convention Center, all the dedicated volunteers, and all of our awesomely crazy plungers for supporting this event and our 26,000+ Special Olympics New Jersey athletes!
