Michigan will be having 25 Polar Plunges in 2017. Polar Plunges are a Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) event. LETR is one of the largest grassroots fundraisers for Special Olympics globally. LETR consists of officers from both Law Enforcement and Corrections who raise funds and create awareness for SOMI year round.
By participating in a Polar Plunge around the state you are helping to raise funds for over 21,000 athletes who participate in Special Olympics Michigan. Special Olympics Michigan is a year round program offering sports for those with intellectual disabilities. Although sports are the "vehicle," the ultimate goal of Special Olympics is to help persons with intellectual disabilities participate and receive respect as members of their communities.
The St. Clair Polar Plunge is supported by the Water Warriors. Since 1991, the Water Warriors have raised funds and awareness to support the life-changing programs of Special Olympics Michigan. Riding their jet-skis over 350-miles on a five-day trek down the length of Lake Huron and the St. Clair River, the Warriors have raised over $2.3 million over the past 23 years.
