TACOMA — Hundreds of people will jump in the icy water of the Puget Sound off Owen Beach for the Tacoma Polar Plunge on Saturday, March 9th to raise money and awareness for 18,000 Special Olympics Washington athletes. The event starts at 10 am and we will plunge at noon.
Our partners at Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County have set a team fundraising goal and need your help to reach it. Any amount that you can donate helps further the mission of Special Olympics Washington. You can contribute here: https://impact.sowa.org/team/212442
If you can’t support the team with a donation, we’d love to have you cheer us on at the event. “It’s something we do down here every year,” said Pierce County Sheriff’s Det. Ed Troyer. “Spike from ‘Spike and the Impalers’ will be here performing and we want everybody to put March 9th on their calendar. We hope to see everybody out there and raise some money for Special Olympics.”
