WHAT IS THE POLAR PLUNGE?
The Polar Plunge is the largest fundraising effort benefiting Special Olympics. In a nutshell, participants collect pledges from friends and family in exchange for the opportunity to jump into icy waters in the middle of winter.

Our Generous 2016 Sponsors:
The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, the largest grassroots fundraising program for the cause, began in 1981 when Wichita, Kansas Police Chief Richard LaMunyon saw an urgent need to raise funds for and increase awareness of Special Olympics.
The idea for the Torch Run was to provide local law enforcement officers with an opportunity to volunteer with Special Olympics in the communities where the officers lived and worked. After three years of successful runs in Kansas, Chief LaMunyon presented his idea to the International Association of Chiefs of Police, which endorsed Special Olympics as its official charity through the Torch Run. Today, all 50 states and over 40 countries have their own versions of the Torch Run.
