Freezin' for a Reason - 7th Annual Winnipeg Polar Plunge

The 2019 Polar Plunge “Freezin' For A Reason” is an event that the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) organizes all over North America to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics.

The Winnipeg Police Service invites you to the seventh annual Winnipeg Polar Plunge which will take place on Saturday, March 16, 2018, at Investors Group Field, Pinnacle Club starting at 1:00 p.m. Join us as we cheer on Law Enforcement and community members who take the plunge to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics Manitoba sports programs.

This year, plungers from the Winnipeg Police Service will be joined by members of the Manitoba RCMP, Corrections, and Sheriffs, as well members of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and local Special Olympics Athletes.

So far this year, Polar Plunges in the communities of Dauphin, Morden, and Portage la Prairie, have raised over $40,000 in support of Special Olympics Manitoba! Those who are interested in participating are encouraged to visit 2019 Polar Plunge MB to register or to pledge their support to the many fearless participants!  

The Polar Plunge helps to support over 1,700 athletes from seven regions across the province who participate in 18 different sports. Currently, three Manitoba athletes are representing Team Canada at the 2019 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Abu Dhabi & Dubai, UAE.
