People were freezin’ for a reason Saturday at Pinehurst Polar Plunge. The polar plunge is a very cool way for the community to come out and support the Special Olympics North Carolina.
Several people braved the frigid waters of Lake Pinehurst to raise money for the organization.
The event was sponsored by Pinehurst Police Department.
In the feature photo above, fearless contenders from Pinehurst Elementary School’s team hit the wintry waters to show their support.
