Special Olympics Polar Plunge

03.02.2024 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Lake County Special Olympics will hold its annual Polar Plunge and Costume Party on Saturday, March 2, at the Buckingham Homeowners’ Club House in Kelseyville.

The event so far has 12 athletes and four teams registered, diligently working to make this fundraiser and event a success.

They include athlete Halena who has received a generous donation of $2,000 from the Lakeshore Lions Club to kick off the fundraising.

They hope to see their usual schools, law enforcement and community clubs and supporters again join athletes for this fun event.

The Kelseyville Lions Club will once again provide lunch for all registered participants, including guests who would like to make a $10 donation to Lake County Special Olympics.

They also are looking for a sponsor for coffee and donuts prior to the start of the event.

This event and fundraiser provides funding for equipment, uniforms and transportation so that athletes in our community have the opportunity to train and compete in year-round sports — basketball, track and field, bocce, softball, golf and soccer.

Please visit 2024 Lake County Polar Plunge to register as an individual or to start a team. Listed on the website are the incentives for fundraising milestones and there will once again be awards for teams and individuals raising the most funds, as well as multiple awards for best costume.

Event check in begins at 10 a.m., pictures and costume contest at 11 a.m., plunge at 11:45 a.m. with lunch to follow in the clubhouse.

Come out and join them as a participant or spectator; it is going to be a great time.
