What is a Plunge? A Polar Plunge is a fundraising challenge made to an individual or group challenging them to dive into a cold body of water in order to raise money for Special Olympics. Each participant collects pledges from family, friends and businesses in the hopes of raising lots of money for Special Olympics.
The Polar Plunge is coordinated by the Law Enforcement Torch Run which is an international charity made up of law enforcement personnel who raise money and awareness for Special Olympics.
A minimum of $75 in donations is required for an individual to be allowed to plunge; a liability waiver also needs to be signed by all plungers. Those meeting the minimum are presented with a commemorative Polar Plunge t-shirt.
