Special Olympics Polar Plunge announces date and new location

Special Olympics Wisconsin-Southeastern Region will host its 13 th annual Polar Plunge on Saturday, Feb. 11  with a new Plunge name and location .

The Southeastern WI Polar Plunge (formerly known as the Pleasant Prairie Plunge) will be held at The Brat Stop, in Kenosha.

A giant pool will be set up in The Brat Stop’s parking lot. Now all of the fun at this family-friendly event will take place in one cool location.

For those “Too Chicken” to plunge, registering as a Chicken means participants still raise funds, but stay total dry, while watching others plunge. The Southeastern Wisconsin Polar Plunge, at The Brat Stop, will feature food, drinks, auctions, raffles and music by The Kingfish. For those just interested in watching it all, we’ll have Plunge viewing areas both poolside (outside) and inside The Brat Stop.

The Polar Plunge is Special Olympics Wisconsin’s largest and most well-known fundraising event. The Southeastern WI Polar Plunge is one of 12 Plunges that will be held throughout Wisconsin. The purpose of this event is to be “freezin’ for a reason,” and to raise funds to carry out the Special Olympics mission  — to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with cognitive disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.

Special Olympics Wisconsin’s Southeastern Regional office supports nearly 1,400 local Special Olympics athletes, from five counties — Racine, Kenosha, Rock, Walworth and Jefferson. The regional office hosts events throughout these five counties year round.
