All participants in this year’s plunge can declare their allegiance when they register to participate in the Polar Plunge. Simply choose Ducks or Beavers when you register and make sure your team brings home the trophy. The Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals to support Special Olympics Oregon participants by jumping, walking or crawling into frigid Oregon waters. The Portland Polar Plunge will happen February 28th. The event is open to the public, and all spectators are welcome free of charge. The best way to plunge is with a team! Every participant must raise a minimum of $50 for the privilege of taking a wintry dip in an icy body of water in February and will receive a commemorative long-sleeve t-shirt plus bragging rights!

Over 20,000 Northwest children find themselves living in foster care at any given time, many of which have entered with little to no possessions. Many have suffered the effects of poverty, neglect, and even abuse. Studies show that for many foster children, these challenges are just beginning. But it doesn't have to be that way. Sleep Country has joined forces with local foster care non-profit partners and our communities in an effort to help Northwest foster kids. With your help, we can provide foster children with the little things that often make a big difference. Help a local foster child by bringing your gift of new pajamas to Sleep Country. Donate at any Sleep Country store or online at SleepCountryFosterKids.org today
