What is the Super Plunge? Over a 24 hour period, Super Plungers will take 24 icy dips (once every hour) in the height of winter. All Super Plungers will live in a heated shelter during this intense, fun and wild round-the-clock adventure.
When is the Super Plunge? There will be two in 2014. In Portland the first plunge will take place at noon on Friday, February 7. The last plunge will be at 11 AM on Saturday, February 8 with the rest of the Polar Plungers. Corvallis will follow the same schedule but begin on Friday, February 28.
Where is the Super Plunge? Right now, there is a Super Plunge in Portland, and we are launching a Super Plunge in Corvallis in 2014. Do you think your town can support a Super Plunge? We need to know that at least 5 people are up to this challenge, and we’ll consider it!
How will our Super Plungers survive? Don’t worry. We’ll take good care of them. We’ll feed them, keep them comfortable & warm and keep them entertained. We promise that it will be a fun adventure.
Why would anyone want to be a Super Plunger? We think it’s obvious. Super Plungers are extreme. Elite. They are people that want to be a part of something special. They also want to help Special Olympics Oregon in our mission of offering training and competition opportunities to adults and children with intellectual disabilities.
So, you think you have what it takes. How can you be a Super Plunger? Super Plunge isn’t for the faint of heart and we know it’s not for everyone. If you are brave enough, tough enough and crazy enough, we want you. We ask that you raise a minimum of $3,000 (Portland) and $2,000 (Corvallis) for the privilege of being a Super Plunger. There are a limited number of spots for the 2014 Super Plunge.
What if I can’t raise the $3,000/$2000? If you have not raised $3,000 (Portland) or $2,000 (Corvallis) by February 1 (Portland) or February 21 (Corvallis), we will either move your name to another team OR jot down your credit card number and keep it on file. If by plunge day, you haven't raised the full amount, but still want to Super Plunge, we will put the balance on your card. If donations come in after the Super Plunge, we can credit your card back for that amount of money. And of course, if you just want to move to another team and plunge once, we won't charge your card.
