The New Bedford Police Union and the Greater New Bedford Special Olympics Program are teaming up and is having their first annual Polar Plunge this year so grab your swimsuits!

On March 25, a Saturday, at 9 am to 2 pm the New Bedford Polar Plunge is taking place at East Beach. Already, the fundraiser has raised $400.

When you jump into that icy cold water, you'll also be helping out nearly 12,000 athletes by providing them with sports programs.

Become a "Below Zero Hero" and donate here and jump into some nice freezing water March 25th!
