Polar Plunge

Polar Plunge for Special Olympics North Dakota

Freezin' for a Reason!

The Polar Plunge is an annual fundraiser organized by North Dakota Law Enforcement as part of the year-round Law Enforcement Torch Run to raise awareness and fund to benefit Special Olympics North Dakota (SOND).  Polar Plunges offer a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support Special Olympics North Dakota athletes by raising money and taking the plunge into frigid North Dakota waters.  

Plungers raise a minimum of $75 for the opportunity to take the plunge.  Have FUN! - form a team, create a fun name and crazy costumes with friends, co-workers, or classmates.  No matter what, the Polar Plunge is all about Fun!
