Plunge into the cold water for an active plus inclusive future with Special Olympics and Pacific University's Unified Sports.

Unified Sports is where people with and without disabilities play on the same team, and members of the neurodiverse population can get more of the college experience while we all socialize and exercise. Please consider joining our team or making a contribution!

Join us for free transportation from the Forest Grove High School to Willamette Park in southwest Portland, compete in a costume competition (hand-made Unified hoodies provided), and plunge into the chilly waters of the Willamette River, take pictures and return to Forest Grove High School!

Schedule of events:

  • 8:30 a.m. | Bus leaves from Forest Grove High School 
    • If you drive separately, please plan to arrive by 9:30 a.m.. Navigating the park can be tricky!
    • 5K begins at 9a.m. (our group will not be participating, but you can participate as an individual)
  • 9:15 a.m. | Arrive at Willamette Park, check-in, and get ready to PLUNGE!
  • 9:45 a.m. | Costume contest begins
  • 10 a.m. | PLUNGE! Dry off and change in provided tents
  • 10:30 a.m. | Head back to Forest Grove HS

The proceeds from our fundraising page will be split 50/50 between Special Olympics and the Pacific University Unified Sports Club.
