Local programs supported
As a member of the 2024 Boston Marathon Xtra Mile Team, Chief Amendola is bringing an LETR sponsored Polar Plunge to his community as a fundraising initiative to support his run and simultaneously spread awareness.
North Reading High School was the first school in Massachusetts to sign on and participate in Special Olympics MA’s mobile plunge with Bear Force One—a fully equipped mobile plunge pool that can hold up to 2,800 gallons of water.
One of the best things about community led fundraising is that it is so much fun. You get to spend time with friends, family and neighbors to support the idea that everyone deserves to be included. You are including more people in the mission for inclusion – it just works! Plus you get to do fun things like pull a truck, play cornhole, take the Polar Plunge, or run a 5K. Join us today to make our community your community and vice versa.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) program is the most community led awareness building and fundraising partnership in the Special Olympics movement. Each year torch run officers host community-based fundraisers across Massachusetts including: tip-a-cops, Polar Plunges, truck pulls, dodgeball tournaments, and 5Ks.Learn more →
