It may not surprise you to learn that the Polar Plunge will not take place at Eagle Point this year.  Instead, this event, that supports Special Olympics, is “going virtual.”  

They are asking participants to register online, raise money, and do a cold weather challenge.  What form would that take? Their website suggests:  “Do snow angels in your swimsuit. Lounge in a cold water-filled kiddie pool in your backyard. Have a water balloon or squirt gun fight while wearing Halloween costumes. Have a family member spray you with a water hose or splash you with a bucket of cold water. Get as creative as you want and have fun with it!”

In previous years, Polar Plunges took place all over Michigan. The annual event at Clark Lake grew every year, attracting more participants and fans in the stands.
