Polar Plunge Returning to Mosaic District This Month

In a few weeks, people can cannonball into an icy poll for a fundraiser in Merrifield.

The Polar Plunge Festival returns to the Mosaic District to raise money for Special Olympics Virginia to provide year-round sports training, competition, leadership opportunities and health services to athletes, according to the event’s website.

It costs $100 to take the plunge. So far, the upcoming event has raised just over $7,000, with a goal of $45,000.

A contest will award the “best-dressed plunger,” according to the Mosaic District website.

The event is set to take place on Saturday (Jan. 25) from 1-4 p.m.
