Get ready for the Polar Plunge with the Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office

Virginia Beach, Va. - This morning a small group of brave souls charged the icy Atlantic to get us ready for the 25th Annual Polar Plunge.

The Chesapeake Sheriff's Office has been doing a "pre-plunge" for years to show their support for Special Olympics Virginia.

This morning - along with their friends Chad and Sarah from the Special Olympics - they took a dip to kick-off the celebration.

The plunge is scheduled for February 3 and 4 between 31st and 34th streets at the Hilton Oceanfront Hotel.

The winter festival kicks off at 10:30am and the plunge begins at 2pm.
