Feel the Thrill of the Chill and support local Special Olympics athletes at the 2018 Las Vegas NEON Polar Plunge, beginning at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24, at Caesars Palace.
The Polar Plunge invites brave residents to take a chilly winter dive into the Neptune Pool at Caesars Palace pool to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Nevada (SONV). The family-friendly event will include food and drinks, festivities, raffles, awards, games, an “Ask an Athlete” booth and meet-and-greets with members of local law enforcement – departments that have chosen Special Olympics as their charity of choice nationwide. Unique this year is the Plunge-in-the-dark neon theme, celebrating the one-of-a-kind spirit of Las Vegas.
Participants must raise a minimum of $125 to take the Plunge and enjoy the full festivities, which include an official Polar Plunge long-sleeve T-shirt. Additional fundraising incentives are available at different monetary levels. Guests are invited to watch their friends or family take the Plunge and may enjoy the post-Plunge festivities for an additional cost.
Proceeds from the Las Vegas NEON Polar Plunge benefit SONV to continue to empower children and adults with intellectual disabilities through sports. SONV offers year-round training and competitions in 10 different sports, educational programs and health resources all completely free of charge to more than 3,000 athletes in the state.
