The 4th Annual Polar Plunge is set for Saturday, Feb. 16 at Lanier Islands Beach & Water Park.
Here’s how it works: Participants collect pledges in exchange for the opportunity to jump into icy waters of Lake Lanier. All proceeds collected by “plungers” will benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Georgia. Prizes will be awarded for the best costume, highest fundraiser, highest fundraising team, and more.
For those who do not love the Polar Bear habitat, organizers will provide areas to keep you comfy – such as heated areas, warm concessions, and fun souvenirs.
The Polar Plunge is the largest fundraising effort benefiting Special Olympics. Many states across the nation participate in this annual event through the efforts of their Law Enforcement Torch Run program. Its purpose is to simply raise funds to enhance Special Olympics’ mission. Registration begins at 11 a.m. with “plunging” beginning at 2 p.m.
