It’s just a quick dip in the water.
Virginia’s Special Olympics is looking for participants for their annual NOVA Polar Plunge Festival on February 24.
Each year people take the plunge in the Potomac River, then take part in a costume contest, food, and live music at Tim’s Rivershore Restaurant at 1510 Cherry Hill Road in Dumfries.
Registration kicks off at 10 a.m., and the official plunge time is 3 p.m.
“It’s $100 to Plunge, but the top 5 teams that raise the most money by midnight before the Plunge will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win 4 free airline vouchers to anywhere in the United States. Plus, the top fundraising team will receive a 16 game ticket plan to the Potomac Nationals and a crab feast at Tim’s Rivershore Restaurant & Crabhouse. The top fundraiser also will receive a pair of tickets on JetBlue and a full season ticket package to the Potomac Nationals. Teams and individuals can earn some nice toasty warm towels to commemorate their icy dip, too,” stated a release.
According to a release, this year the event is being hosted by the Prince William County Police Department.
