Polar Plunge
for Special Olympics Michigan

What is the Polar Plunge?

Each year, the Law Enforcement Torch Run® Polar Plunge series challenges thousands of brave jumpers at numerous locations around the state. It's a great way for everyone - individuals, organizations and businesses - to get involved in supporting Special Olympics Michigan. All funds raised go towards year-round sports training and athletic competition for nearly 23,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Michigan.

Think you have what it takes? The concept is simple: participants raise a minimum of $75 and take a dip at any one of the 30 Polar Plunge locations in Michigan. But the Plunges are so much more than that: They're the kind of fun and thrilling events that you really have to experience to understand. Grab some friends, get pumped and register today!
