Polar Plunge 2016 was held on Saturday, February 6 at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront  
We are so proud of all of our athletes, parents and friends who stepped up this year and took that cold plunge into the wintery, cold Atlantic. We were "Freezing for a Reason" helping to raise the funds to support our Special Olympics Chesapeake Sports Program. You looked great in your plunge t-shirts and everyone had a great time.
