Freezin’ for a Reason! Tacoma Polar Plunge raises more than 50K for Special Olympics Washington
TACOMA -- About 300 people raced screaming into the Puget Sound off Owen Beach in Tacoma on Saturday for the annual Polar Plunge to raise money for Special Olympics Washington. The money goes to help athletes like Lizzie Enriquez-Ortiz. She plunged three times. Lizzie competes four sports including swimming, basketball, bowling and flag football. "The freeze is temporary but the impact is not," she said.
