Special Olympics Polar Plunge Season is hopefully coming again this December!
Do you dare to join us? Last year our events were over subscribed so make sure you sign up early!
Organised by Special Olympics Ireland and the Law Enforcement Torch Run Committee we are calling on you to take part in this "hilarious" event in aid of Special Olympics.
What is the Polar Plunge?
The Polar Plunge dares you to jump into freezing cold water, hence the name Freezin' for a Reason!
Not only do you get the chance to re-invigorate your body but it's a great way to kick of your Christmas season as we have plenty of festive cheer at our plunge locations.
