The Upper Cumberland will be freezin’ for a reason on March 6 with the second annual Polar Plunge in the region.

Upper Cumberland Polar Plunge Director Kaydra Cash said donating and fundraising for the plunge helps support the Upper Cumberland’s Special Olympic teams with equipment and travel expenses.

Although, Cash said that because of COVID, supporters will be able to do their plunge from home.

“Participants can do like a water hose down, a balloon fight, bucket challenge,” Cash said. “They have to video themselves to submit it to get credit that they actually did a plunge at home.”
