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 fund-raise the minimum requirement to be able to take part in the Plunge. Prizes will be given to Plungers based on how much money they raise in donations and %100 of donations will be given to Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Ontario!

Who can get involved?

The West Grey Police Service will be hosting our first of what we hope to become the Annual Special Olympics Polar Plunge at St. Peter’s & St. Paul’s Separate School on March 10th 2017!  Police and Fire Fighters will be in attendance with tons of prizes to be given away! Teachers and Students are encouraged raise money to be given the pleasure to dress up in funny costumes and jump into the cold above ground pool that will be set up outside! There will be music and food and lots of laughs!
