Because the traditional Polar Plunge is not really possible this year, SO has the "Earn Your Wings" program through March 31 with either
- Be an Angel for Special Olympics Indiana by dressing up or making a snow angel and sharing a photo or video on social media using the hashtag #EarnedMyWings.
- IT'S YOUR RACE to participate in the first annual Polar Plunge Run and compete from home against others across the state. This brand new way to be Freezin' for a Reason invites participants to complete a 5k or 10k anywhere and anytime during the 2021 Polar Plunge season.
