Peoria event raises money for free swim lessons


Who needs coffee as a pick me up when you can jump into freezing cold water?

That was the case at the annual Polar Plunge in Peoria at Sunrise Pool Saturday morning.

It’s more than just about swimming in a pool that hasn’t been heated since November.

Everyone at the event donated money to go toward free swimming lessons for city youth.

That’s important for a state where drowning is the number one cause of death for kids under the age of four.
