Givebutter (links above) is the fundraising platform we are using for this year's plunge. We have also provided you with promotional graphics to aid you in your fundraising campaign.  

Law Enforcement Torch Run

Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics (LETR) is the largest grassroots fund raiser for Special Olympics. At its most basic level, the Torch Run is actually a running event in which officers and athletes run the “Flame of Hope” to the Opening Ceremonies of local, state, national and international Games.  At its most extensive, LETR encompasses a variety of fundraising vehicles including merchandise sales, donation and pledge collection, and special events.  LETR includes police departments, sheriff’s deputies, FBI agents, private prison and TDCJ corrections officers and personnel, district court officers, military, constable’s offices and fire department personnel.

A Note About Safety

Our Polar Plunge events are planned carefully and provide many safety precautions, including divers, lifeguards, medical and emergency personnel on hand, as well as emergency procedures in place to ensure that all participants can enjoy a safe, fun experience. We take the health and safety of our participants seriously.  A safety waiver is required to participate (find this waiver in the Givebutter campaign registration above).
