Special Olympics Montana (SOMT) is a state-wide non-profit organization. Their mission is to provide year-round sports training, athletic competition, and health-related programming for individuals with intellectual disabilities; giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
The Polar Plunge is an icy dip into the frigid waters of Montana and is a fun and exciting way to support Special Olympics. Over $300,000 is raised each year in Montana with hundreds of brave souls making a splash! It’s primarily organized, promoted and conducted by law enforcement through their affiliation with the Law Enforcement Torch Run® to benefit Special Olympics Montana.
Anyone who is in good health can participate in the Polar Plunge. Plungers will need to raise at least the minimum amount ($125) in order to earn the “privilege” to plunge. The higher amounts participants raise the more incentives they receive.
