2021 PLUNGES LOOK A LITTLE DIFFERENT...

YOU CAN CHOOSE TO PLUNGE IN PERSON OR VIRTUALLY!

 

If you are plunging in person, we are excited to see you! To keep participants safe, there will be a few guidelines to keep in mind for this year's plunge:

·       All plungers must wear a mask and adhere to social distancing. 

·       There will be NO official check in. Any cash or check donations can be turned in at the Information table. 

·       There will be NO changing designated changing areas. Please plan accordingly.

·       There will be NO prizes awarded for costumes, so just wear your best plunge gear.

·       There will be NO post party. ALL incentives will be redeemed online and delivered directly to you in the following weeks. 

·       For teams: Large groups will be asked to split into smaller groups of five. 

 

If you are plunging virtually, we are excited to 'see' you, too! It doesn't matter how or where you plunge--just have fun and get cold! Don't forget to share your plunge efforts on social by tagging Special Olympics Nebraska and using #BeBoldGetCold!
