POLAR PLUNGE UPDATE!
For the most current travel conditions, please stay tuned to the Indiana State Police for any weather-related updates. Should any of the Polar Plunge activities be changed, participants will be notified by the email address per your Plunge registration. Thank you.
Later this year, a Flame of Hope will be lit in Athens, Greece and travel to the United States. This flame will be carried on torches across our nation all the way to Los Angeles, California to kick off the Special Olympics World Games in July and August 2015.
The Flame of Hope represents our passion that times must change – that those with intellectual disabilities deserve equality, respect and opportunity – not tomorrow but today!What is the Unified Relay? In May 2015, Special Olympics will launch three simultaneous torch runs from the east coast of the United States – one from the north, one from the central part of the country, and one from the south.
Over the course of 46 days these unified torch runs will cross the nation touching all 50 states.
You can participate. You can walk, jog, run, rollerblade or cycle while carrying the Flame of Hope. Requirements? Teams of 1-15 people will be asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 to run, bike, rollerblade, walk or otherwise carry the Flame of Hope for an Indiana leg of this national route!
