6th Annual Polar Plunge for Special Olympics

Posted: Updated:

6th Annual Polar Plunge for Special Olympics. More than 700 brave souls jumped in the Columbia River for the 6th Annual Polar Plunge.

The donations go to the Special Olympics. So far they've raised more than $100,000 for local Olympians. "Everybody should come down and do this," said Attorney General Rob McKenna.

The Kennewick Police Department helped coordinate the event. "Everybody is having a great time down here. It just doesn't get better than this. It's humbling. It's very humbling to see this kind of support," said Kennewick Police Sgt. Randy Maynard.

The money raised stays local to help more than 1,000 Special Olympic participants in the Benton and Franklin County area.
