Special Olympics Polar Bear Plunge

This single-day Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Jersey event has raised more than 13 million dollars over the past 20 years through pledges collected by participants and donations from sponsors. The success of this event has advanced the goal of Special Olympics New Jersey, to provide free year-round training and competition in 24 Olympic-type sports to more than 23,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The Plunge has helped to fund the creation of new programs, as well as expand existing programs. Be a part of the fun. Join the thousands who will take the Plunge for Special Olympics New Jersey or support a Plunger.
