2022 Polar Plunge, Saturday Feb. 19th

2022 Polar Plunge

Written By: Prince William County

Are you brave enough to weather the February elements in support of a worthy cause? If so, registration has opened for the 2022 Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics Virginia. This year’s event is back in person at Leesylvania State Park, 2001 Daniel K. Ludwig Dr., Woodbridge (22191) on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022.

The Prince William County Police Department is looking for hardy individuals – or teams of family, friends, co-workers, or organizations – willing to brave the cold temperatures on land, and in the water, to help raise money for Special Olympics. Our goal this year is to raise $100,000!

Registration is open, and the public can participate in several ways:

  • Take the “Plunge,” either as an individual or as a team that you put together with friends, neighbors, family or co-workers. Join Team PWCPD and start fundraising!
  • Donate funds (if crazy, fun action is not your thing).
  • Come out and cheer everyone on.

There’ll be live music, games, door prizes, food trucks, law enforcement displays and more, including a costume contest and, of course, a chilly plunge into the Potomac River!

To register as an individual or as a team for “Team PWCPD,” and for more information, please visit: https://www.polarplunge.com/prince-william. This link also has information on donating to Team PWCPD.

To come out and cheer everyone on, mark your calendars for Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022. Registration and check-in begin at 11 a.m. Live music and the other activities run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The costume contest begins at 1:15 p.m., and the official plunge starts right after. There is on-site parking near the beach and marina at Leesylvania State Park, and all plungers will receive a parking pass.

The Polar Plunge benefits Special Olympics, an organization which is supported by law enforcement officers throughout the United States and in 45 countries.
