Freezin' for a Reason!
Polar Plunge for Special Olympics is back!
Throw away your winter jacket and throw on your bathing suit, uniform or favourite football jersey (Super bowl Sunday). It’s time, once again, to take the Kingston Polar Plunge.
Presented by the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run, Kingston Police and the OPP will be co-hosting the 2020 Kingston Polar Plunge at Crawford Dock/Confederation Basin to raise awareness and funds for the athletes and families of Special Olympics Ontario. This non-profit organization helps provide quality sports and training programs for children, youth and adults with an intellectual disability.
BACK AGAIN THIS YEAR
Too cold? Taking a year off? A retired Plunger? No problem!
Want to help support more than 26,000 Special Olympics Ontario athletes without having to jump in the freezin’ cold water?
Register as “Too Chicken to Plunge” and you will still have the ability to raise pledges, earn incentives, and be part of the fun!
Chickens are a great addition to every plunge team and are great at giving moral support, cheering from the comfort of the sidelines, taking team photos and helping to celebrate your team’s success.
Fundraising opportunity for registered SOO athletes and volunteers! 75% of your online fundraising will go to your club or community of choice. You MUST indicate the club or community you want your fundraising directed to when you register to ensure funds are allocated correctly.
The plunge will take place Sunday, February 2 at the Confederation Place Hotel (237 Ontario St, Kingston)
