Supporting Special Olympics Nevada

Greater Nevada Credit Union is a proud sponsor of Special Olympics Nevada (SONV), and our team members regularly volunteer for special events, conduct fundraising, and cheer on our local SONV athletes. In addition, GNCU’s EVP and CFO is the Board Chair of SONV and our annual champion of events such as the Polar Plunge.

Throughout the year there are numerous opportunities for everyone to support SONV, and you can also visit GNCU’s community involvement page to see upcoming SONV events we’ll be at. See photos below from previous events that show how much fun we have!

2020 Polar Plunge - Postponed

Out of an abundance of caution, the South Lake Tahoe Polar Plunge scheduled for March 28 has been postponed. Stay tuned for a potential future date and thank you for supporting this Greater cause.

Join this cool fundraising event. Individuals fundraise or pay $125 or more for the experience of plunging into chilly waters and supporting over 27,000 Special Olympic athletes in year-round sports training, health initiatives, education and leadership programs throughout Northern California & Nevada. If you can't "bear" the thought of chilly water but want to support Special Olypics, you can register as a chicken. You'll enjoy all the festivities and incentive rewards, without taking the plunge. The Theme for poloar Plunge is the 60's so break out your love beads, flower power and bell bottoms and we'll have a gas! Click here to learn more.
