ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Even though Northwest Arkansas is inching closer to spring, it’s still cold enough for a polar plunge.
Participants arrived at Beaver Lake to dive into chilly water to help raise money for the Special Olympics.
Diver Reece Richardson said there were a number of reasons he came out to brave the icy temperatures.
“I do think this is a good cause and it would be fun to do. It’s my first time ever doing it. I just wanted to try something new,” Richardson said.
The event was hosted by Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Arkansas.
