|The 10th annual Polar Bear Plunge will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, in the outdoor Boro Beach pool at SportsCom in Murfreesboro.
Brave men, women and children from around the area will don costumes and swimwear and take “polar” dips for families who benefit from programs offered through Murfreesboro City Schools.
The Polar Bear Plunge is open to anyone 5 years or older. For those younger 18, a waiver must be signed by a parent or guardian.
Each “polar bear” is required to bring nonperishable food items for the Family Resource Centers. All participants can purchase an official Polar Bear Plunge commemorative T-shirt on the day of the event.
The average water temperature hovers around 40 degrees, but for the not-so-brave souls, there is a Chicken Plunge into the heated indoor pool.
Registration begins at 8:15 a.m.
Pre-registration is available at SportsCom, located at 2310 Memorial Blvd.
