Over the last six months Maryland Special Olympics has worked hard to find a way to have an In-Person Plunge and an on-site Super Plunge in January.

Given the recent spikes in COVID-19 and anticipated escalation of the COVID-19 cases in January, Special Olympics Maryland made the decision to not proceed with any In-Person Plunge or on-site Super Plunge.

To help keep the Maryland Tradition that is the Polar Bear Plunge alive, they will be having a Virtual Plunge for the first time, giving everyone the opportunity to participate, raise money for the athletes of Special Olympics Maryland, and receive the iconic Plunge sweatshirt in the mail.

SOMD is encouraging all Plungers to send in their Virtual Plunge videos for a two-month long competition, with weekly prizes for Plungers of the Week, ultimately determining the Plunger of the Year! Follow Maryland Special Olympics and Plunge Maryland on social media to stay involved!

Longtime Super Plunger and Special Olympics Maryland athlete Adam Hays commented on the decision, “I plunge to show that my disability doesn’t define me. We say “you plunge, I play” …well I plunge so my fellow athletes can play and I encourage all Marylanders do the virtual plunge so that our athletes can play.”
