Approximately 40 to 50 people took the Polar Plunge in Tega Cay Saturday and over 150 others volunteered and came out to show support. The event raises money for Special Olympics.

The Tega Cay Police Department held its annual Polar Plunge on Saturday at the city’s Beach Club to benefit Special Olympics. Temperatures at noon were in the 30s.

“Lots of people are turning themselves into human popsicles to raise money for Special Olympics,” the city Facebook posted Saturday morning.

The plunge was originally to be into Lake Wylie, but a sewage spill earlier in the week necessitated a no-swim advisory, so officials moved the site. Last year’s Polar Plunge raised more than $24,000.
