Plungers return to Sunnyvale this weekend

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Wausau Polar Plunge 2020 returns to Sunnyvale Park to continue its support of Special Olympics Wausau.

The two-day event begins Friday with school plunge teams and preregistration, followed by the main event Saturday.

The schedule Saturday begins with event registration from 10 to 11:30 a.m. with "Toss Your Boss" at 11:45 a.m., leading to the plunging beginning at noon.

There will also be live music from 'Knock Point', raffles and refreshments on Saturday.

All the proceeds benefit the Special Olympics Wisconsin, a cause close to the hearts of nearly all plungers.

"For a lot of our plungers, it's personal. They know someone who is in Special Olympics and has seen the impact it's had on their life, so they come out here to show their support. It's great," said Miranda Haima, Director of Special Events for Special Olympics Wisconsin.

Participants may have the chance to meet Adam Domino, a Special Olympics Athlete and a 20-year veteran of the Polar Plunge.

"I look forward to it every year because it's so much fun, and I get to meet all the new athletes … and find out how much you raise. It's a good feeling," said Domino.

There is still plenty of time to register for the Polar Plunge in person: from 3 - 6:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
