Special to the
The eighth annual “Auburn Polar Plunge” to support the Lee County Special Olympics will be held Feb. 1 at Samford Pool, beginning at 9 a.m. The goal of the Auburn Polar Plunge is to raise financial support for the brave athletes of the Lee County Special Olympics.
In 2019, more than $10,000 was raised for Special Olympic athletes. The goal in 2020 is to surpass last year’s pledges. Once a participant registers, the goal is to get as many people as possible to “sponsor” the plunge. There will be prizes for people who raise the most money, as well as prizes for the winners of the costume contest. All participants are encouraged to dress in costume, jump in and join in for a fun frigid day in support of a very worthy cause.
