Special Olympics

Being involved in the community does not stop for the Redmond Police Department when we leave work. Among the many organizations the police personnel donate time to is Special Olympics. 

Take the Plunge!

The Redmond Police Department will again be joining law enforcement agencies across the state in support of Special Olympics Washington. Thanks to the support of our Redmond community, the 2014 Polar Plunge was successful in raising almost $28,000.

This year, Redmond Police Department asks for your monetary or in-kind donation to help support the 2015 Polar Plunge, which will be held on Saturday, March 14 at Idylwood Park. Our goal this year is $30,000.

Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competitions in an Olympic setting for individuals with special needs. All contributions are welcome, and of course, Special Olympics Washington is a 501(c)3 tax-deductible charitable organization.

Special Olympics

Along with many police agencies throughout the United States, Redmond Police fully supports the efforts of Special Olympics. The Law Enforcement Torch Run Campaign has raised millions of dollars for Special Olympics around the world.

Redmond Police raised $4,211.25 on Saturday, Oct. 25, 2014, for Special Olympics' annual Tip-A-Cop fundraiser. Law enforcement personnel served as waiters at Red Robin locations in Redmond Town Center and Overlake, with all tips going directly toward Special Olympics Washington.

Tip-A-Cop 2014

The Polar Plunge is an annual fundraising effort when police personnel and community members raise money and take a dip into the chilled waters of Lake Sammamish. The 2013 Plunge was Saturday, March 16, where a record number of plungers raised a record amount of money for Special Olympics Washington athletes. We had over 115 plungers and raised more than $28,000.
