Are you ready to plunge yourself into the ice cold waters of Lake Tahoe at the South Lake Tahoe Polar Plunge!? This morning, Saturday March 29th, 2014 Zephyr Cove beach hosted the event with several teams raising money for the Special Olympics. Each plunger sponsors one Special Olympic athlete for the season and needs to raise a minimum of $125 for them. The fundraiser supports the Special Olympics in Northern California and Nevada.
The event started at noon at the Zephyr Cove beach. I was actually able to bike to the event, a perfect place to bring my Granite Rocx the tahoe backpack cooler. The UNR Band played at the event and there was food and drinks. Each plunger dressed up in a crazy outfit, if they chose to, as there were superman outfits, bumblebee outfits, and much much more! The plungers were set up in three waves and with a ready set go, each wave proceeded one after the other into the cold Tahoe waters. A great event for a great cause!
Below are a few pictures!
Zephyr Cove beach is located in Zephyr Cove Resort. Coming from South Lake Tahoe, follow Highway 50 into Nevada. As you pass Zephyr Heights on your right, Zephyr Cove Resort will be on your left at the light.
