The fun starts at 11:30 a.m., and it will take place at Griffin Lodge, located at 2063 Redfern Road in Wadesboro. Events like the Polar Plunge help support nearly 40,000 Special Olympic athletes in North Carolina. Special Olympic athletes around the world follow the oath: Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt. The plungers will consist of law enforcement, emergency services and individuals of all ages from the community. Each plunger is asked to either raise or donate a minimum of $100. Special guests include Anson County Special Olympics athletes, local leaders in the community and DJ Brandon Little. New to the event this year will be an area designated for those participants who want to enter the water without jumping from the pier. Also, there will be prizes for best costume and most money raised. This event is open to public - whether you are a plunger or not. The Sheriffs Office encourages everyone who can attend to come out and support this unique event, and have a lot of fun at the same time!
