Get ready to freeze your badge off! As Polar Plunge VIPs, local law enforcement teams are invited to take the Plunge during this exclusive event on Friday, February 15th in Oshkosh. Last year, over 50 law enforcement agencies from across the state took to the icy waters across Wisconsin raising over $101,000 to support the athletes of Special Olympics Wisconsin.
Forming your Team & Fundraising
- Grab your co-workers, family members, and even the chief and form a team. Your team can be 2 or 200…the size is up to you!
- Too Chicken to Plunge? Not everyone needs to Plunge…employees can register as Too Chicken and still raise donations and be a member of your team! Chickens have a blast at the event and are a great cheerleaders!
- Team members can raise donations online or cash/check. Your team can get creative and hold a fundraiser to raise donations. Ask a local business to support your team or sell $1 icons to raise additional funds.
