What to expect at the Madison Polar Plunge
The water at the Plunge hole is typically over 6 ft deep and the distance to exit of the water is about 12 ft. The water will go over your head when you jump in. Remember that there is a last minute option of doing the "chicken dance" if you become frightened or overwhelmed at the prospect of Plunging.
All plungers MUST raise a minimum of $75 to participate in the plunge. Sign up online right now to learn how to raise pledges at: www.specialolympicswisconsin.org
