Whether you want to earn bragging rights, get some cool swag or just help out Special Olympics New Jersey as much as you can, our incentive program is your way to get your hands on some Plunge gear.
As you hit fundraising milestones, you’ll earn the items below which are cumulative – and help out Special Olympics New Jersey even more…win-win! So the more money you raise, the more cool items you will receive.
What is the minimum amount required to receive an incentive?
All plungers must raise the minimum depending on the date they registered – see Registration Info and Deadlines. If plunging as a team, all team members are still required to raise the minimum. The minimum needed to Plunge will get each plunger the first incentive item, the Polar Bear Plunge Hoodie.
Are the Plunge incentives for sale?
We do not sell any of our Plunge incentives because we feel it is a privilege for those who participate and have earned the various incentive levels. If we do have a large number of incentives left at the end of the season, we’ll make the items available online. We do have separate souvenirs that are available for anyone to purchase at the Plunge.
Am I guaranteed to receive my incentive when I check-in?
We do our best to order enough incentives to cover all the Plungers who participate, but if there is a substantial increase in Plunge registrations, we may not have everyone’s incentives available on site. If you do not receive your incentives the day of the Plunge, they will be mailed to you as soon after the event as possible.
Can I trade my incentive after the event?
Plungers cannot change their incentive after the event. Incentives are given out based on what your fundraising total is on the day of the plunge. Any funds turned in after the plunge will still go towards your fundraising total, but will not change your incentive.
*Please note all incentive colors and styles are subject to change based on availability.
