The 2021 Law Enforcement Torch Run Virtual Polar Plunge was a tremendous success! Law Enforcement agencies were joined by supporters of Special Olympics from across the province and raised $22,518 for Special Olympics Saskatchewan. This year, with safety being top of mind, the traditional Polar Plunge was replaced with a virtual challenge. Participants were challenged to brave the cold and raise funds and awareness in support of the over 1,500 Special Olympics athletes in the province and share their experience on social media. Leading the way were the Depot Polar Plungers, who raised an amazing total of $10,620 for Special Olympics. The top individual fundraiser was Kirk Muyres who raised a total of $1,265. The most creative social post went to the RCMP Frozen Few. Overall, eight teams and forty six individuals took part in the plunge. We are extremely grateful for everyone who participated, donated and supported the Virtual Polar Plunge. The funds raised go toward providing low to no cost year round programming and training opportunities for individuals with an intellectual disability.
