Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Oregon Tonight if You Can Brave the Cold 

If you're brave enough, Bend's Polar Plunge takes place tonight at Riverbend Park.

In case you laid in bed all day, like I wanted to, you might look out your window and think, "Oh, it looks nice out there." In this instance you would be wrong. Don't let the sun trick you, it's arctic cold out there and for those of you participating in tonight's Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Oregon, I don't envy you.

Last year, Source staffer Sara Roth took a dip in the icy Deschutes River to raise money for Special Olympics Oregon. Her training might not have been the most effective, but in the end, she drove right in and were we ever proud - because the rest of us are admittedly a bunch of chickens. 

Over 30 Plunge events take place in over 15 states throughout the country in order to show support and raise funds for the Special Olympics.

Tonight's event takes place at Riverbend Park, which is off Columbia St. on the Westside. Check in starts a 4:30pm, and there will be a costume contest at 6pm. Opening Ceremonies and the Polar Plunge itself begins at 6:30pm. There will no doubt be plenty of creative and hilarious costumes to witness, so throw on your parka and go out to support a great cause.
