In 2019, 450 plungers came together across five cities for the coolest parties in Alberta as they dove into freezing waters at Polar Plunge.
The plunges raised over $185,000 in support of Special Olympics programs across the province.
This year Special Olympics athletes, law enforcement officers, a CFL player, an Olympic medalist, government members and media personalities joined forces to take the plunge raising awareness and funds for athletes here in Alberta.
Their passion was inspirational and their efforts will go a long way in creating inclusion on a global scale.
Thank all the volunteers and sponsors in all the Polar Plunge cities and venues: Lake Summerside, Henderson Lake Park, Arbour Lake, Bower-Kin Community Center, and the Medicine Hat Family Leisure Centre.
