Polar Plunge @ Grand Traverse Resort

The annual Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Polar Plunge series is known for its zany costumes and courageous participants. After raising funds, these participants dress up in costume and prepare to plunge, ready to jump in and freeze their fur for a good cause. Funds can be raised by collecting donations from friends, family, co-workers and neighbors.
Proceeds from these plunges help supports year-round sports training and athletic competition for more than 20,670 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Michigan.
The series of Polar Plunges is made possible by the Law Enforcement Torch Run, a group of law enforcement officers and corrections department employees throughout the state who are committed to raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics Michigan Athletes.
The Traverse City Polar Plunge will take place on February 9th at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. Registration will begin at 10:00 a.m. inside the Clubhouse located on the Resort’s property. The parade of costumes will start at 11:00 a.m. and the plunge immediately following the parade. The Awards and Post Plunge Party will begin at noon at the Clubhouse.
Michigan will be having 27 Polar Plunges in 2013. Polar Plunges are a Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) event.  LETR is one of the largest grassroots fundraisers for Special Olympics globally. LETR consists of officers from both Law Enforcement and Corrections who raise funds and create awareness for SOMI year round.
 By participating in a Polar Plunge around the state you are helping to raise funds for over 19,000 athletes who participate in Special Olympics Michigan. Special Olympics Michigan is a year round program offering sports for those with intellectual disabilities. Although sports are the "vehicle," the ultimate goal of Special Olympics is to help persons with intellectual disabilities participate and receive respect as members of their communities.
