Officers from the Columbus Police Department are set to take the plunge this weekend to raise money for a good cause. Lt. Matt Harris talks about the “Columbus Polar Plunge” taking place downtown to benefit Special Olympians across the state…

Saturday’s event takes place at 11 a.m. near Fourth Street and Washington Street outside of the Commons and you’re encouraged to come and watch. Harris says that, so far, officers have raised nearly $700 for this year’s Columbus Polar Plunge. If you would like to take part in the plunge, you can register online at soindiana.org/polar-plunge. You will also be able to register from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on the morning of the event. Officials with the Indiana Special Olympics say that you must raise at least $75 to participate.
