If you’ve ever wanted to express your inner polar bear, now’s your chance.
The forecast calls for temperatures in the mid to high 30s around noon Saturday, Feb. 3, when the Tega Cay Police Department hosts its annual Polar Plunge into Lake Wylie at the city’s Beach Club to benefit Special Olympics. Not sure you can take the frigid lake, even for a good cause? There are other ways to help.
“We are in need of people to plunge, volunteer to help set up/clean up, take pictures and help out throughout the morning,” said TCPD Sgt. Robert Burns, who’s organizing the fundraiser.
Last year’s Polar Plunge raised more than $24,000 for Special Olympics, Burns said.
