2020 Polar Plunge

Presented by the Manitoba Law Enforcement Torch Run

As we're sure by now everyone is aware,  the COVID-19 situation in Manitoba is constantly evolving.   Based upon recent information and steps taken by some of our partners, Special Olympics Manitoba has now made the decision to suspend all community weekly training and competitions, as well as fundraising events through March 31, 2020.   

This unfortunately means that we will have to postpone the Winnipeg Polar Plunge scheduled for this Saturday, March 14th. We will begin to work towards a new date as soon as possible.

THE POLAR PLUNGE IS A SERIES OF EVENTS WHERE PEOPLE JUMP INTO A FREEZING WATER TO SUPPORT SPECIAL OLYMPICS MANITOBA

Special Olympics Manitoba is part of a global movement of people creating a new world of inclusion and community. Through athletic, health and leadership programs, SOMB aims to create a world that accepts and welcomes every single person regardless of ability or disability. All funds raised from Polar Plunge support over 1,800 athletes across the province who participate in Special Olympics programs such as Young Athletes, Unified Sports, Healthy Athletes and Athlete Leadership Programs.

The Polar Plunge is a part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run movement. To further the mission of Special Olympics Manitoba, the Manitoba Law Enforcement Torch Run carries the torch, representing the “Flame of Hope”, and dedicates itself to the goals of continually increasing awareness and funds for Special Olympics athletes across the province. Simply put, Polar Plunge would not exist without the dedication, efforts and service of Manitoba Law Enforcement.

Fundraising is required to participate in the Polar Plunge, but the minimum $100 you raise accomplishes so much more than getting you to jump into a frozen lake!
