Special Olympics Polar Plunge

More than 100 people were plunging into cold water in Lawton.  But it was all for a good cause, to raise money for the Special Olympics.

Groups from Cameron, LHS, Ike and Mac all joined in the fun Saturday at the Holiday Inn Express.  The participants raised more than $10,000 dollars to go towards the cause, all of which will be staying in the state of Oklahoma.

"It's a unique event. It takes that unique person that wants to come out and do something crazy for a good cause and thank goodness Special Olympics has a lot of dedicated volunteers," said Derek Cain, Special Olympics of Oklahoma Director of Development.

The Oklahoma Special Olympics Polar Plunges are growing. This year there are nine statewide plunges with more than 800 people participating.
