POLAR PLUNGE 2023!
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.
Welcome to 2023 Special Olympics Family.
We came back strong- lets keep rolling!

Activities may be limited based on volunteer availability and required athlete to coach ratios (4 athletes to each coach). If we do not get enough volunteers/coaches sports will be capped or possibly cancelled all together.
