DENVER — If you’ve never jumped into frigid water in the middle of winter you don’t know what you’re missing.
Denver7 is proud to once again sponsor the Polar Plunge benefiting Special Olympics Colorado. Each year, the Polar Plunge challenges thousands of brave jumpers, including some of your favorite television personalities, to jump into frigid cold waters to raise money for the organization.
There are multiple plunges around the state for people to take a part in. Each one makes a difference for the 25,000 athletes who are a part of Special Olympics Colorado. Special Olympics Colorado offers children and adults with intellectual disabilities year-round sports training and competition. Through Special Olympics’ athletic, health and leadership programs, people with intellectual disabilities transform themselves, their communities and the world. Funds raised through the Polar Plunge help to support programs such as Young Athletes, Unified Sports, Healthy Athletes and Athlete Leadership Programs, to name a few.
