Eighth Annual Auburn Polar Plunge

What is the Eighth Annual Auburn Polar Plunge?

The Eighth Annual Auburn Polar Plunge doesn’t just encourage residents to brave the cold of a pool in the winter—it also encourages them to raise funds for an important group: the Lee County Special Olympics.

Dressing up is one of the big traditions involved in taking the Eighth Annual Auburn Polar Plunge.

Once you’ve finished your dive, you can warm up with some hot chocolate. Yum! You can also vote for your favorite costumes in the costume contest. And you should know: winners with the best costumes will get some pretty cool prizes!
