Join this year's Virginia Beach Polar Plunge February 3-4, 2017, and you'll give new meaning to the word "cold" while helping the Special Olympics.
One of the top Virginia Beach events in winter, Virginia's Adventure Club East and the Special Olympics Virginia have once again hooked up for this special fundraising event. Over the last few years, the Polar Plunge has raised nearly millions for Special Olympics Virginia, with over 6,000 brave individuals taking the plunge.
And to make things even more fun, all participants are encouraged to take their plunge in costume. So as you race to the waves in your Spiderman costume, don't be surprised if Superman is right behind you!
