FOX 17 is teaming up with the Special Olympics of Michigan to present the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge series!

Mike Avery and FOX 17 challenge you to raise needed funds for the Special Olympics: dress up in costume and prepare to plunge into a freezing Michigan lake for this good cause.

Proceeds from these plunges help support year-round sports training and athletic competition for more than 18,600 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Michigan.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite

    be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
