This year’s Special Olympics Eau Claire Polar Plunge event was held at Half Moon Beach. The day started with light rain that quickly changed to snow as participants got ready for their turn to jump into the frigid water. Many of the participants dressed up in costumes for the event that raises money and awareness for the Special Olympics of Wisconsin. I volunteered my time and talent to photograph the event as well as promote it and host the images. The Polar Plunge was a blast for spectators to watch and plungers across the state raised over a million dollars for more than 10,000 athletes in Wisconsin.
