            Welcome to our Fourth Annual Polar Plunge!                                                              ...Are you brrr-ave enough?

The Polar Plunge committee is taking the advice of the NS Department of Health to limit events to less than 150 people.  We are unfortunately postponing the 2020 Polar Plunge. 

The success of the Polar Plunge and your incredible support means we are only delaying the event. Registration is still open. Donations are still being accepted. Please stay tuned for a new date and details. 

Please reach out with any questions or concerns. 

Nova Scotia LETR is very proud to partnering with Special Olympics Nova Scotia to host our 4th Annual Polar Plunge in support of Special Olympics at Grand Parade in Halifax!
