Polar Plunges in Ohio

A polar plunge (also known as a polar bear jump) is for the bravest of brave! In fact, I believe I have been called “brave” more times for doing a polar plunge than for when I went skydiving!

Basically, this event consists of jumping into an extremely cold body of water for a short amount of time and then hopping back out! Many of these events take place to raise money for the Special Olympics or other charities.

Upcoming Polar Plunge events to raise money for the Special Olympics include:

There is also the Portage Lakes Polar Bear Jump on February 21 at Portage Lakes State Park in Akron to raise money for the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.
