Tulsa Polar Plunge

What is it? The Tulsa Polar Plunge is an event for which Special Olympics Oklahoma raises money for its competitions. This is a great way to support our athletes and make sure they have a safe, fun time when they compete.

What can I do? In terms of service hours, you have two options: become a Plunger for 1 service hour OR service hours will be given for each increment of $10 you donate (1 for $10, 2 for $20, etc.)

To donate: https://www.mysook.org/TulsaPolarPlunge/Team/View/141480/Jenks-Project-Unify

To become a Plunger: you will need to go to mysook.org and register for the Polar Plunge. When you do, be sure to join our team (Jenks Project Unify), or it doesn’t count. The minimum cost to participate is $75, virtual or physical. You can pay that money directly or raise donations from your peers. At the Polar Plunge on February 27, 2021, come between 10am and 10:45am to get signed in. It starts at 11am, at which point each team will take turns jumping into cold water to show our support. If you do decide to come, please jump with us! Only Plungers will be allowed near the pool.
