Special Olympics Polar Plunge

Alaska USA employees raised thousands of dollars for Special Olympics athletes.

Polar plunge or solar plunge?

An icy encounter or refreshing swim? Just ask the Alaska USA employees who participated in the Special Olympics Polar Plunges this spring—they took to the water in a wide range of climates, from cool and rainy Washington to hot and sunny Arizona! 

Alaska USA recently partnered with the Special Olympics to sponsor their Polar Plunge events in Arizona, California, and Washington. Some employees braved a chilly awakening while those in Arizona called their event the “solar plunge.” Employees who pledged and plunged raised thousands of dollars for sports training and competition for Special Olympics athletes. 

Whether hot or cold—way to plunge, #TeamAlaskaUSA!
