Jump in!

Join SONV’s efforts to establish an independently run Special Olympics program in Nevada by attending our 2023 South Lake Tahoe Plunge Event!

Celebrate our “Battle Born” spirit by attending this event in your best “Independence” themed costume!

This is our break-away year, so help us meet our fundraising goal by registering today!

Event Check-In Begins at 9 a.m.

Our goal is to engage and educate the community about Special Olympics athletes and how they foster inclusion by participating in the Plunge.

We encourage everyone to bring at least one family member, co-worker, or friend to register and Plunge with you. Better yet, be a Team Captain and invite everyone you know to be a part of this crazy event.  The funds you raise will ensure that Special Olympics athletes have their vital sports and health programs during these challenging times.

There are a few ways to register: you can register as a Plunger and make a splash or register as a Chicken and participate while staying dryand cheer on your teammates from the sidelines. You’ll make your choice when you register.

Make a weekend of it!

Enjoy the weekend and take advantage of the great room rates Caesar’s Hotel is offering our participants.  Rooms must be reserved by March 22 so don’t delay.  Rates are good for Friday and Saturday night.
