Take the plunge for Special Olympics

CDCR teams stand beside lake before jumping in for Special Olympics.

2023 Special Olympics Polar Plunge

It’s time to make a splash – the 2023 Special Olympics Polar Plunge is right around the corner.

This year’s theme is “Super Heroes” – and CDCR/CCHCS is full of those. Show your support to the Special Olympics and either join an existing team or grab friends/co-workers and create your own.

All proceeds benefit Special Olympics California which provides sports, education, leadership and health programs to children and adults with intellectual disabilities.  CDCR/CCHCS is a continued supporter and partner with Special Olympics.
