(TULSA, Okla.) On Saturday, February 23rd at 11:00 am at Safari Joe’s H20 Water Park (4707 E. 21st Street), two Tulsa Police Academy teams will be marching into the icy waters to raise money for Special Olympics Oklahoma. Tulsa Police Academy Class 114 and Tulsa Police Reserve Class 2018-1-2 make up one team and Tulsa Police Academy Class 115 makes up the other. We are making this a tradition at the Tulsa Police Academy and the entire training staff has pledged to go in the cold water TWICE if both teams raise at least $8,000. In 2018, the two Tulsa Police Academy Classes were the top two teams in the state and raised nearly $20,000 for Special Olympics. The Polar Plunge will provide funds to be donated directly to Special Olympics Oklahoma. All money raised will benefit the more than 11,600 athletes involved with the Special Olympics Oklahoma program. Special Olympics events allow individuals to create goals, to work towards those goals, and allow them to focus on something they are able to do, rather than on the ability or capability they lack. The athletes also find success, friendship, and joy through participation in the games. If you would like to donate to one of the teams, please click on one of the following links. All money goes directly to Special Olympics Oklahoma.
