Grab Your Swimsuit for the Polar Plunge
Saturday, Jan. 5, is Peoria’s 11th annual Winter Water Safety Day and Polar Plunge from 8 to 9 a.m. For those brave enough, or who are interested in jumping into cold water for the fun of it, this event will be at Sunrise Pool, located at 21321 N. 86th Drive, beginning at 8 a.m. The event raises funds to provide free swim lessons for those who cannot afford them. In addition, this event helps raise awareness for drowning prevention during the winter months when people are not actively using their pools. To register or to make a donation toward swimming lessons for underprivileged children, go to peoriaaz.gov/aquatics.
