LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Special Olympics Nebraska held their annual polar plunge at Holmes Lake Saturday morning.

115 people took the plunge into freezing waters at Holmes Lake all for a good cause.

The Lincoln Polar Plunge raised over $25,000 for athletes and programs for Special Olympics Nebraska.

This was one of five plunges across the state.

“It’s great, we love seeing this. It’s a reminder of the great community support we have in the Lincoln area for all of our athletes and the programs we offer, which without all of this we couldn’t provide opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities,” Katie Kellar, the Program Director for Special Olympics Nebraska, said.
