Get wet at Scales Lake and raise money for special Olympics | Community Spirit
Scales Lake will host the annual Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics on Saturday, February 9.
Registration takes place from 11 a.m. to noon with the plunge at 12:30 in the not-so-warm waters of Scales Lake. Afterward, the “After Splash Bash” takes place inside the pavilion with plungers getting a free lunch and guests paying $5 for a donation. Homemade chili and chicken noodle soup, hot dogs, cookies and drinks will be served.
To participate, each individual must raise at least $75 in pledges. Do so and you’ll receive a long sleeved t-shirt. Students can plunge for $50 with ID but will not receive a shirt.
The goal is to have 150 plungers and raise $30,000.
