Law Enforcement Torch Run

Plunge Season is Coming!

The Polar Plunge® is a Law Enforcement Torch Run® signature event. It is a unique opportunity for individuals, clubs, organizations and schools to support local Special Olympics Montana athletes by jumping, running or slowly crawling into the frigid and icy waters of Montana.

 

The first Polar Plunge was held in Whitefish, Montana in 1999. Since then the events have grown to 13 different plunges held all over the state with over 11,000 participants raising more than $350,000 annually for Special Olympics Montana.

Law Enforcement Torch Run

The Law Enforcement Torch Run has raised millions of dollars and changed attitudes by engaging law enforcement officers statewide to be champions of acceptance and inclusion.

The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) for Special Olympics is to raise funds and awareness of the Special Olympics Movement worldwide. Special Olympics is a program that daily reaffirms our beliefs that with hope, love and dedication we can see achievement and self-worth realized by any individual. It is our belief that persons with intellectual disabilities, by their involvement in Special Olympics, show the community at large the true meaning of sports and a pure joy towards life.
