There’s nothing like it. Jumping into the icy cold water in the middle of winter, for a fantastic cause. The adrenaline rush is unmatched! Polar Plunge is coming up Saturday, March 5 at Black River Beach in La Crosse.

“Funds raised from the Polar Plunge help serve nearly 9,000 incredible Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes, who are breaking down barriers to build communities of inclusion.” There are many ways to be involved. Pledge and plunge, donate, toss your boss, be “too chicken to plunge”. However you choose to be involved, your participation and donations are greatly appreciated!
