Thanks for visiting our team page for the 2020 Columbus Polar Plunge!
We've joined together to support the 22,000 athletes of Special Olympics Ohio by taking the plunge in the winter waters!
Special Olympics Ohio is focused on providing year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendships with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
Our Hilliard Special Olympics program has been in existence since 1987! We currently have just over 150 athletes involved in our program from the Hilliard and surrounding areas and participate in sports year round. We are responsible for all of our fundraising for our team and with our dollars that we raise our athletes and teams benefit greatly! Monies raised are used for state entry fees, team uniforms and equipment, facility usage fees, and fees associated with national and world games. It currently costs our organization about $25,000 to run our program. We are extremely excited that you may be willing to be part of our team or donate to our jumpers who are crazy enough to jump in freezing cold water (& ice)! We cannot thank all of our donors enough for your support...THANK YOU!!!
