5K RUN TO THE PLUNGE
What better way to prepare for the Plunge than with a frigid February 5K run or walk? Or, if you draw the line at jumping into the ocean, this event is a great way to be a part of the weekend without getting wet.

In Memory of Len Leshem
Len Leshem became involved with Special Olympics in the mid-80s, and for more than four decades, he coached sports, volunteered at countless events, and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the organization.
Len was part of the organizing committee that took the Plunge from a singular event on the first Sunday in February to become a robust Weekend Festival of activities, including the 5K – which he was so passionate about.
Len passed away in October 2023 and we are honored to host this year’s race in his memory.
The 2023 5K Run to the Plunge was the 14th anniversary event and hosted over 500 participants.
