This unique fundraising event to support the Special Olympics is a time to help those with dreams and goals of being the best. The money raised help children and adults of the Special Olympics with training, support, encouragement and much more.

Caeser's Creek was to host the 4th annual Polar Plunge. The event currently has raised over $28,000, and is still taking donations. With the dangerous drop in temperatures, the blizzard-like blowing conditions and the frozen lake, the organization found the conditions too dangerous to proceed. With the outside temperatures at 25 degrees on Saturday afternoon, the water may have seemed like a sauna with the water temperature at 32 degrees.

Even with the stressed conditions, plungers were not swayed from attempting to participate in a wonderful cause. The organization did not post the canceling of the event until an hour before the custom contest, which was to be followed by the plunge. Anticipated participants circled in the parking lot after being told the event was rescheduled.

Other polar plunge events are scheduled on March 1 at Grand Lake St. Mary's and March 15 at Indian Lake.
