About the Cause
In New Hanover County, over 600 athletes participate in Special Olympics. Our program receives no government funding and relies solely on private and corporate support as well as the efforts of over 300 volunteers to provide these services at no cost to the athletes or their families. Run for a cause on a perfectly measured 5K course open to all ages and skill levels. 

5k runners and 1 mile fun walkers are not required to plunge but are encouraged to heat up with the run/walk and cool down with the polar plunge. Find your inner super hero! Teams or individuals can dress in costume to add to the fun. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.
