More than 50 plungers will brave freezing water to support Special Olympics athletes.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Alberta is looking to raise $250,000 in 2020 through plunges in five cities across the province.
“We are challenging everyone to get out and make a splash in support of our athletes at this year’s plunges,” says Johnny Byrne, Special Olympics Alberta CEO.
“This year, the event is open to all ages and it will be exciting to see new and familiar faces braving the cold, which makes a huge impact for our athletes every year.”
Red Deer’s Polar Plunge will be held Saturday at the Bower-Kin Community Center, 85 Boyce St. Registration gets underway at 10 a.m. and the plunging starts at 11 a.m.
Plungers can stay for the after party, with fun activities like ice skating, and they can enjoy coffee or hot chocolate.
