Special Olympics Michigan is looking to raise over $1.2 million through its Polar Plunge events.
Michigan’s 40th annual Special Olympics Winter Games kicks off on Wednesday in Traverse City.
More than 900 athletes will compete, the highest turnout since 2007.
What better way to plunge into a brutal winter than taking a plunge into your local pool or pond? Maybe not recreationally, but to raise money for a good cause.
