Mayor Carlo DeMaria is pleased to announce that the Everett Police Department and Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics will be hosting the first annual Polar Plunge on Sunday, December 11 at 11 a.m. at the Everett Recreation Center located at 47 Elm St. Check in for plungers will begin at 9 a.m. Plungers will take turns jumping into a cold pool to support Special Olympics. Participants are encouraged to invite their bravest, inclusion-celebrating friends and family, create a plunge team and start supporting.
The Polar Plunge is about more than just a good time. The program aims to empower over 14,000 Special Olympics athletes in Massachusetts to train and compete in the sports they love, sponsoring lifelong friendships and competitive spirits, and celebrating inclusion for individuals with intellectual disabilities on and off the playing field.
