It's that time of the year to plunge into frigid winter water to benefit Special Olympics Washington.
And if you raise $150 for the athletes, you could win a week-long trip to Maui!
I've been a big supporter and "Freezin' for a Reason" for years now.
"The Polar Plunge is fun because our athletes go through such a struggle," says Kendyll Opel with Special Olympics Washington Law Enforcement. She's the Torch Run Manager and adds, "It's kind of a fun way to get together and for a minute, just push yourself to the boundaries to see what the athletes go through and what they have to do to persevere and the limits that they push. "
There's seven Polar Plunge events this year:
Seattle, Golden Gardens
Yakima, Sarg Hubbard Park
Tacoma, Owen Beach
Spokane, Liberty Lake
Anacortes, Seafarers Park
Redmond, Idylwood Park
Wenatchee, Walla Walla Point Park
