Most want to remain indoors and attempt to keep warm, while others decide to take on the cold and dive into frigid waters.
Maybe. But plunging into icy conditions is actually for a good cause.
On Saturday, Feb. 8, Owensboro participants will take a dip in the lake at The Hines Center.
The Plunge works like a Walk-a-Thon where participants solicit internal donations, whether online, through a team page, or email blasts.
“(This event) supports our year-round mission to provide services for the athletes,” said Candace Thompson, Special Olympics Senior Special Events Director. “Without events like this we would not be able to support our mission.”
The event is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Feb. 8 at the Hines Center, 1 Wellness Drive.
The Polar Bear Plunge is free and open to the public.For more information, visit Special Oylmpics Kentucky Polar Bear Plunge online.
