Any money raised by your agency will be credited to your agency’s LETR fundraising efforts. We recognize all agencies that raise $1500 or more on “Honor Roll.”
Your agency can raise money either by sitting on a Polar Plunge committee if there is one in your area, or by simply putting together a team. This is a fun, easy way to raise money!! For more information, visit www.PlungeOregon.com
Any agency in any community can put on a Tip-A-Cop. Our goal here is to have at least one Tip-A-Cop in each Oregon county. Special Olympics Oregon has partnerships with Red Robin and state-wide Tip-A-Cops happen in these restaurants. Don’t have one of these restaurants in your community? No problem! Local restaurants are perfect partners for this event.
Teams line up adjacent to a rope attached to the aircraft. The aircraft will be similar to the NASA Gulfstream II Shuttle Simulator, weighing approximately 35,000 pounds. On the starter’s signal, the pull time will begin. After the team pulls the aircraft the required 50 feet, the stopwatch is stopped and the elapsed time is recorded as the team score. Each team is asked to fundraise $150. Register today!
For the motorcycle enthusiasts out there, 7th Gear Motorcycle Company teams up with a group of Law Enforcement volunteers to put on a motorcycle ride in August.
Torch Run Pledges
While it is not required to raise money to run in the Torch Run, we challenge each runner to try to raise at least $50 for the privilege of running in the Torch Run.

Special Olympics Volunteer Oath:
“I promise to give of the time in my life so that Special Olympics athletes can have the time of their lives. I promise to support Special Olympics not just as an expression of charity, but as a form of respect for my fellow human beings. I promise to spread the word of volunteerism because, in giving, I receive so much more in return.”
