The Prince William community isn’t afraid of a little cold water.
This year’s Polar Plunge raised $91,000 for Special Olympics Virginia.
The event occurred February 22, at Leesylvania State Park in Woodbridge, and — according to a release from the Prince William County Police Department (PWCPD) — brought out many supportive people from the community.
It was held by the PWCPD.
The participants included Polar plunge teams, volunteers as well as members of Prince William County Sheriff’s Office; the Town of Haymarket Police Department; the City of Manassas Park Police Department; the City of Manassas Police Department; the Fairfax County Police Department; the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office; and the Arlington County Police Department.
The Special Olympics is an organization that provides training and competitions for people with intellectual disabilities, according to their website.
