Windsor and Essex County law enforcement agencies are once again partnering with St. Clair College to support Special Olympics Ontario through the Annual Polar Plunge.

This year’s festivities launched on Wednesday with the St. Clair College “Slip n’ Slide” party on the softball diamond at the St. Clair College Main Campus.

Polar Plunge 2023 will take place on Friday, February 24th, 2023 at the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre at 6:30pm.  Plungers will hit the water in a pool that is constructed specifically for this event just outside the front doors of the facility. All plungers are eligible to receive great incentive items. As an added bonus for future St. Clair College Saints, the College is presenting a $500 bursary to any current grade 12 student who will attend St Clair College in September 2023.

Since the inaugural event in 2015, over 1,000 participants have taken the icy plunge locally. All funds raised directly benefit the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, with 75 percent of funds raised by any Special Olympics athlete or volunteer remaining within the host community. The fundraising goal this year is $50,000, and organizers are hoping to see over 200 brave souls hit the water.
