Community members will brave icy waters later this month for the annual Michigan Law Enforcement Polar Plunge.

The event is held annually to raise money for the Special Olympics of Michigan, which provides free sports programs for athletes with intellectual disabilities in Livingston County. Local individuals and teams have already begun fundraising for the event, which will be held on Saturday, January 27th. Participants of the Livingston County Polar Plunge will jump into Leith Lake, located behind Brighton High School.

Special Olympics Michigan will host 28 Polar Plunges in 2018, and over 200 athletes in Livingston County will benefit from the Brighton event. The pre-plunge party, registration, 50/50 raffle and family friendly activities will be held inside the school’s gymnasium. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. The parade of costumes and awards will begin at 1:30 p.m.
