Now entering it’s fifth year, the LETR Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Saskatchewan is one of the biggest fundraising events of the year for the over 1,500 Special Olympics athletes in our province. We couldn’t “bear” the idea of not hosting it this year, which is why we have come up with a fun virtual format with a couple exciting twists!
All funds raised from the Polar Plunge stay in Saskatchewan and go toward enriching the lives of individuals with an intellectual disability. While we acknowledge that the Winter weather isn’t always ‘snow n’ice’ we encourage you to embrace the elements for a great cause! You can get involved by registering as an individual or team, pledging a plunger or making a general donation. It’s time to get #FreezinForAReason Saskatchewan!
HOW THE POLAR PLUNGE WORKS
1) Register from anywhere in the province as an individual or on a team. Just for registering, you will automatically receive an entry for the grand prize draw of $500 in “cold” hard cash, which will take place on February 16th! ($20 minimum donation to Special Olympics Saskatchewan to register).
2) Fundraise in support of Special Olympics Saskatchewan. Ask friends, family and co-workers for pledges! For each $100 fundraised by a participant, a ballot will automatically be entered for you to win a $500 Sobeys gift card!
3) Create a video or post a picture of you braving the cold! Tag us on social media @specialosask with the hashtag #FreezinForAReason to receive one additional entry in the grand prize cash draw. The most creative post (selected by our Polar Plunge planning committee) will also receive a $100 Tim Hortons gift card! Costumes are strongly encouraged! *Safety is our top priority, we will not accept any videos of jumping in frozen lakes or bodies of water. Unsafe or inappropriate videos will not be accepted.
4) The individual and team who fundraise the highest total by noon on February 16th, will get to choose who will have the “honour” of taking an outdoor Polar Plunge ice bath. One celebrity plunger and one team captain will be selected to each take an outdoor ice bath in support of Special Olympics Saskatchewan. If selected to to take the ice bath, we will arrange all the logisitics to bring the bathtub, ice and water to you!
