The Polar Plunge

In case you aren’t familiar with the city’s annual Polar Plunge, we’ll break it down for you. First of all, this family-friendly event is for a good cause. Each year, the City of Auburn hoststhe event to raise funds for the Lee County Special Olympics.

In fact, participants raised more than $14,000 in 2021! This year the goal is to surpass that amount for the 10th Annual Auburn Polar Plunge.

How? Register in advance at by searching Polar Plunge 2022 in Auburn, AL. Next, raise money by finding plunge sponsors.

You can make it more exciting by challenging your friends, neighbors or a fellow business to a friendly competition. For instance, whoever raises the most money decides who gets to take an ice-cold dip next Saturday.

In honor of the 10th Annual Auburn Polar Plunge, this year’s theme is “Silver.” Sparkle and shine in and out of the water in your best silver attire for the event’s 10th anniversary. Plus, there are prizes for most money raised, best costume and more.


Get ready to channel your inner silver fish at Samford Pool, 328 East Samford Ave., behind East Samford School, from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m.
