Grandview swimmers take the ‘Plunge’ for Special Olympics



More than 1,100 swimmers took to the freezing waters of Longview Lake on Friday all for a good cause.

It’s part of the “Polar Plunge,” a 21-hour fundraising event for the Special Olympics.

“It’s one of those things, as soon as you hit the water, its pins and needles,” described swimmer Mike Day. “But there are 12 of us, and we know this is going to Special Olympics.”
