We are proud to partner with our friends from the Wawa Foundation to honor Everyday Heroes and to improve the health of our athletes in Virginia. In late 2015, Wawa joined SunTrust and Enterprise as a major sponsor of our Law Enforcement Torch Run initiative in Virginia. In addition to supporting the guardians of the flame, Wawa also supports Polar Plunge events in several states (including our Virginia Beach plunge) and conducts an annual in-store fundraiser that benefits Special Olympics champions of all abilities.
Summer Edition of The Guardian
The Summer edition of The Guardian, the newsletter of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® Executive Council, can be found here. Topics include Hawaii and Oklahoma's Polar Plunges, and Torch Run efforts in Lithuania.
Check out this great media coverage from Channel 29 in Charlottesville and The Progress-Index in Petersburg that highlights some super cool Torch Run volunteers who brrrraved the chilly Atlantic Ocean in early February to help raise in excess of $1 million for Special Olympics Virginia.
We can’t wait to see more cool Torch Run teams at our regional Polar Plunge events on February 27 in Richmond, Dumfries and the New River Valley! For more information, visit www.polarplunge.com.
