Polar Plunge for Special Olympics in West Michigan
Polar Plunge for Special Olympics in West Michigan


The annual Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) Polar Plunge series is known for its zany costumes and courageous participants. After raising funds, these participants dress up in costume and prepare to plunge, ready to jump in and freeze their fur for a good cause. Funds can be raised by collecting donations from friends, family, co-workers and neighbors.

Proceeds from these plunges help supports year-round sports training and athletic competition for more than 19,600 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Michigan.

There are 28 Law Enforcement Torch Run® Polar Plunges throughout Michigan in January, February and March 2013. Plunge sites include Alpena, Belleville, Brighton, Caro, Cheboygan, Chippewa Lake, Detroit, Edwardsburg, Fenton, Gaylord, Grand Rapids, Holland, Jackson, Kalamazoo, Lake City, Lansing, Lansing Legislative, Marquette, Monroe, Mt. Pleasant, Muskegon, Saginaw/Bay City, St. Clair, Sault Ste. Marie, Stanton, Sylvan Lake, Traverse City and University of Michigan.

The series of Polar Plunges is made possible by the Law Enforcement Torch Run®, a group of law enforcement officers and corrections department employees throughout the state who are committed to raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics Michigan Athletes.
