Special Olympics Hawai’i is putting its supporters on ice with the return of the nonprofit’s popular Polar Plunge. This year’s event returns Saturday, April 14, 2018, at 9 a.m. with plunges taking place every hour until 1 p.m. at the lawn of Waterfront Plaza fronting Ala Moana Boulevard. This year’s theme is inspired by the popular Netflix TV series, “Stranger Things,” encouraging supporters to channel their inner Eleven and face the mighty Demogorgon, a 95 foot long, 36 foot high inflatable slide, and plunge into the Upside Down World of ice cold water.
All participants are asked to raise a minimum of $100 for Special Olympics Hawai’i. Passionate plungers, who raise $500 or more, will receive mahalo gifts and can plunge up to six times. There will be a reduced fundraising goal of $50 for students of all ages, elementary through college. Registration is now open online at www.sohawaii.org.
