What is a Polar Plunge?
As the name implies, a Polar Plunge is a winter fundraising event whereby individuals have the “honour” of jumping into the icy waters of a nearby lake or similar body of water. They are able to participate by securing donations from friends, family members, co-workers, local business or their community in general. This is a signature provincial event of the Law Enforcement Torch Run initiative benefiting Special Olympics Ontario (SOO).
How Does the Polar Plunge Raise Money?
‘Plungers’ will either pay the registration fee or fundraise the minimum requirement to be able to take part in the Plunge. In most cases, incentives will be given to Plungers based on how much money they raise in donations.
Where Does the Money Go?
100% of the funds will directly benefit the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
