Anyone with a little guts and a warm heart wanting to support the athletes of Special Olympics Georgia is welcome to participate! Participants collect pledges from friends and family in exchange for the opportunity to jump into icy waters in the middle of winter.

Prizes will be awarded in several categories, including best costume, highest individual fundraiser, highest team fundraiser, and many more.
