The OLETR in partnership with St. Clair College Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support Special Olympics Ontario athletes by gathering pledges and plunging into the icy waters for a cause!

Be Bold, Get Cold!

Special Olympics Ontario provides individuals with an intellectual disability in communities across the province the opportunity to participate in sport and recreational activities. The organization has helped thousands of children and adults with intellectual disabilities become all they can be physically, socially and emotionally. Windsor-Essex has 120 athletes that compete in Special Olympics programs.

Registration and pre-plunge fun starts at 5:00 PM. The plunge begins at 6:30 PM.

To participate in the Polar Plunge, please register online and agree to the waiver. Collect donations from all your friends, family, co-workers, and anyone who would like to see you plunge into the icy waters!
