Sioux City police officers are hoping you'll take the plunge on Saturday. By taking a dip in Browns Lake you'll help support Special Olympic athletes in Iowa.
There are 11,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities and Unified Sports Partners that benefit every year from the Special Olympics.
On Saturday, October 20th, Siouxlanders will join people in 12 other communities around the state of Iowa who are hosting Polar Plunge events.
Plungers are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes because prizes will be awarded. Participants will jump into Browns Lake in groups of 10 or more, and each plunger will be announced by team name prior to plunging.
Registration begins at 11 a.m. at Browns Lake, near Salix, Iowa. The plunge takes place at noon to be followed with a post party.
If you raise $75 in pledges you'll receive an official polar bear T-shirt, admission to the post-plunge party and a chance to win one of two $250 cash drawings.
Special prizes will be given to the Polar Bear who raises the most money, the team with the best costumes and the Polar Bear with the best costume.
If you're too chicken to take the plunge you can register as a chicken and raise pledges to receive your chicken T-shirt.
