Special Olympics Iredell County is bringing back the popular Polar Plunge later this month after a long break due to the pandemic.
The plunge takes place on Saturday, February 18, at the Statesville Leisure Pool, located at 1877 Simonton Road. Registration starts at 10:30 a.m. and the plunge begins at 11 a.m.
This community event raises money to support local athletes who participate in Special Olympics sports at the local, regional and state level.
Nearly 40,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities across North Carolina participate in Special Olympics each year.
The public is invited to plunge with Special Olympians and coaches. Everyone who raises $50 will receive a Polar Plunge T-shirt.
