11.19.21 Second Annual Polar Plunge is on the way
Wednesday, December 1, 2021
Sheriff Carter Weaver is announcing the launch of fund-raising for the second annual Georgetown County Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics.
The event will be Saturday, Feb. 5, 2022, at Litchfield Inn. Registration begins at 10 a.m. with a costume contest at 11 a.m. and the plunge into the cold Atlantic at 11:30 a.m. High temperatures only reached the 40’s for the first Polar Plunge, and participants splashed happily into the water.
Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office, its sponsors and partners, raised nearly $22,000 for the inaugural event this past February and hope to do markedly better the second time around.
“Please join us in funding and honoring these deserving athletes,” Sheriff Weaver said. “By plunging, you’re creating more opportunities for athletes with intellectual disabilities to experience the life-changing benefits of participating in Special Olympics – all at no cost to themselves or their families. Special Olympics serves more than 30,000 athletes in South Carolina”
The Georgetown Polar Plunge is part of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Torch Run campaign and 100 percent of the funds raised directly benefit Special Olympics programs around our state. Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office “No Shave November” event will donate its proceeds to Special Olympics.
Plunge participants agree to raise at least $50 from sponsors. To sign up, go to https://give.classy.org/2022GeorgetownPlunge
