Polar Plunge
for Special Olympics Michigan

Manistee, Marquette & Sault Ste. Marie Polar Plunges Postponed

Due to concerns related to the spread of the coronavirus, Special Olympics Michigan has made the difficult decision to postpone its final three Polar Plunge events of the season that were scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 14 in Manistee, Marquette and Sault Ste. Marie.

While this news is incredibly disappointing for all of us, the health and safety of our participants, spectators, volunteers, staff, and partners remains our top priority. It is our hope that these Polar Plunges may be able to be rescheduled at a later date.

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.
