Hundreds of Wausau-area residents took the Polar Plunge Saturday at Sunnyvale Park, an annual event that raises tens of thousands of dollars for Special Olympics.

In 2019, 240 plungers raised about $50,000. This year’s tally has not yet been announced.

Wausau Pilot & Review reader Debbie Zahurones was at the plunge and shared these photos with us from Saturday’s event. Thanks for the photos, Deb!
