This Saturday at Boulder Reservoir, brave swimmers will submerge to help raise funds for Special Olympics Colorado.

The Polar Plunge is a part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run event series, which aims to raise awareness and funding for the Special Olympics movement.

"Every plunge makes a difference for nearly 25,00 Special Olympics Colorado athletes," according to a release from the Boulder Police Department. "Special Olympics Colorado offers children and adults with intellectual disabilities year-round sports training and competition. Through Special Olympics' athletic, health and leadership programs, people with intellectual disabilities transform themselves, their communities and the world."

Participants must raise a minimum of $75.

Registration and the Plunge Plaza will open at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, with the plunge being at 1 p.m. at the Boulder Reservoir, 5565 51st St. An "After Splash Bash" will take place at Rayback Collective, 2775 Valmont Road, at 1:30 p.m.
