The Polar Plunge is an annual charity event in support of  Special Olympics D.C. The event will take place at Catholic University’s Cardinal Stadium on Friday, February 3, at 6 p.m. Sounds like a fun event for a great cause! From the Catholic University Department of Athletics website:

Everyone is invited to take the plunge in the swimming pool which will be erected on the field, directly behind the DuFour Athletics Center.

It is a quick dip that makes a big impact in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.
