Ottawa Polar Plunge

Freezin' for a Reason!

Polar Plunge for Special Olympics is back!

Presented by the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run, the annual Polar Plunge is a fun opportunity to support Special Olympics Ontario athletes by taking a flying leap – a leap into very cold water!  Register, dare a friend, donate, fundraise … every little bit supports an amazing cause.
