Taking the plunge for Special Olympics Texas

Taking the plunge for Special Olympics Texas

LUBBOCK, Texas -

One of the biggest fundraisers of the year for Special Olympics Texas: The Polar Plunge.

It's been cold enough for pools to get frigid, so it's time to take the plunge.

Saturday morning's weather was a bit warmer than expected. To make sure everyone got the full frigid experience, extra ice was thrown into the swimming pool.

Athletes and sponsors are all raising money by accepting challenges to dive into freezing water, and the money will all stay here in our area.

FOX34 Senior Photojournalist Andrew Wood was there and takes us to the edge of the pool in the video above.
