Last year’s Polar Plunge raised over $30,000 for Special Olympics at Clark Lake. That’s the amount brought in by participants who jumped off the marina dock and into the frigid waters in an open area at Eagle Point.
Once again, the event will take place at the Point. Registration begins at 8:30 am. Participants show off their costumes beginning at 10:00 am. The main event launches at 10:15 am. Awards and After Splash Bash commence immediately following the last plunger at The Pointe Bar and Grill.
At the time this story was assembled, nearly $5000 has been donated. If experience holds true, that number should grow quite a bit. You can get updated info on the Plunge by clicking here.
To get an idea of what the instant loss of body heat is like to participants, check out photos and videos of last year’s event published on this website. No doubt you’ll want to be sitting by a roaring fireplace as you watch.
