One day to go till Alki Polar Plunge for Special Olympics

(WSB photo from Alki Polar Plunge 2010)
Can you “bear” to jump into the 40-something-degree water off West Seattle’s most popular beach? Looks a wee bit gray tomorrow for the Special Olympics/Washington-benefiting Polar Plunge at Alki (which WSB is proud to co-sponsor again this year). But the spirits will doubtlessly be bright – just look at some of the scenes from last year, when more than 350 people showed up to brave the chilly waters of Puget Sound, including law-enforcement leaders from all over the region. They’ll be back, as will last year’s Spirit Award winners, the Chief Sealth International High School delegation. How about you? It’s quite the scene – with the Seahawks’ Blue Thunder drum line performing ahead of time, among other pre-Plunge excitement. The Polar Plunge itself is at noon, with festivities in the hour or so ahead of time. Here’s where to go to sign up online; you can also show up after 9 am to sign up by the Alki Bathhouse. See you there!

    I was wondering when the plunge was happening and couldn’t find it in this article or on the actual site. If anyone’s interested in actually doing it, sign up as said above is after 9am and the actual plunge is noon. If you aren’t interested in jumping come out and donate some money and watch us.

      Hi, Haha. Yes, it’s right there in the story – signups at 9, plunge at noon, haven’t edited it since I published it about this time yesterday. See you there, we hope! – TR
