2018 Buffalo Polar Plunge

Praxair's Polar Pride

Praxair is proud to be a sponsor of the 2018 Polar Plunge fundraising event for Special Olympics New York! The event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Woodlawn Beach State Park in Buffalo. All proceeds will be used in support of training and competition for athletes that compete in Special Olympics events year round.

The Polar Plunge is a part of the year-round fundraising program called the “Law Enforcement Torch Run” through which law enforcement from across New York State raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics.
