Did you know?

Did you know that Polar Plunge is an event of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) for Special Olympics Oregon?!

LETR is a year-round fundraising and awareness building campaign that involves THOUSANDS of law enforcement volunteers who donate their time and money to support the athletes of Special Olympics Oregon through grass-roots events like Tip-A-Cops, a Harley-Davidson Raffle, an annual Torch Run and of course, POLAR PLUNGE.  In addition to year-round fundraising, Law Enforcement volunteers cheer on Special Olympics Oregon athletes as they compete year-round.

Even though the 2014 Polar Plunge is 8 months away we're already gearing up for it. Registration is OPEN and we have some exciting new details coming soon so stay tuned!

Help us get there!

We have raised just over $1,300 through Global Giving for our 12 for 12 campaign! Can you help us reach our goal of $2,000 by June 1st? 

We just need 5 people to commit to donating $12 a month for 12 months in order to reach that goal. Also, by donating just $12 a month you'll be paying for an athlete to participate in Special Olympics Oregon and get Training for Life. Training for life means that athletes are making new friends, learning new skills, and competing every day, every month, every year.

Please help us reach our goal by clicking the link below. THANKS

Our Games Are Always

Our Games Are Always! What does this mean? It means our athletes are practicing, learning new skills, and competing with friends every day, every month, every year. Your donations through Share the Torch help make this possible for our participants.

Summer State Games are right around the corner (July 13-14) and we need your help to make this happen! More than 1,500 athletes, dozens of local businesses and 1,000 plus coaches and volunteers put in more than 5,000 hours to make these games happen in Newberg, Oregon. Your donation will ensure that our athletes can compete and have the time of their life with track & field, softball, bocce, and golf.

 

Please visit our Facebook and Twitter pages to get up to date information as the games approach. We hope to see you there!
