Sports Schedule


Join our Polar Plunge Team! Money raised by this team gets to stay in the county! Click Here!

Join us MARCH 11 in Portland for the Rose City Polar Plunge and 5K! As it says above, any money raised by our Washington County team stays IN COUNTY. This is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for Special Olympics.

Every bit helps- sometimes even just sharing and spreading the word can get us the networking we need for supplies, donations, sports facilities, coaches, or whatever other stuff we are looking for.

Washington County is the biggest county in Oregon covering tons of square miles and over 400 athletes and their families and caregivers.

Your leadership team will be there, #Freezinforareason. We hope to see you there, too.
