What is the Plunge?

The Special Olympics San Diego Plunge at Aquatica is a fundraiser during which individuals and teams, alongside Special Olympics athletes donate for the joy of “Plunging” into the largest wave pool in Southern California.

This year's Plunge featured the Chiefs Challenge where law enforcement chiefs from across San Diego County competed for bragging rights, and the Chiefs Challenge Perpetual Trophy.
