2018 Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Makes a Splash

The Ottawa Police Service and Special Olympics Ontario (SOO) are pleased to announce this year's fundraising for the annual Polar Plunge reached $19,750!


Over 90 plungers braved the winter temperatures with lots of fun (and some questionable) costumes to take the plunge into a tank of freezing water making a splash in support of local athletes.


"Events like the annual Polar Plunge are so important to keep local Special Olympics athletes involved in the sports they love," said Insp. John McGetrick.


In partnership with the Law Enforcement Torch Run, the Ottawa Police and Special Olympics Ontario would like to thank the plungers and their supporters for contributing to the success of the plunge.


Stay tuned for the 2019 Polar Plunge!
