Polar Plunge 2015: "Freezin’ for a Reason" to help Special Olympics athletes

It's that time of the year to take a dip to benefit Special Olympics Washington. The video below shows some of last year's frigid fun.

I've been a big supporter and, as you can see in the video, "Freezin' for a Reason" for years now. There will be eight polar plunge events this year, including one on February 7, at Seattle's Golden Gardens and February 21 at Tacoma's Owen Beach. "The pirates will be there. We have some celebrity guests coming in and some other events that are surprises and I am sure, as usuaL, a couple of us will end up in the water in uniform," said Pierce County Sheriff's Det. Ed Troyer. For more information, and to register for the events in Seattle and Tacoma, or any of the other six plunges across the state, head to specialolympicswashington.org
