It's that time of year to be freezin' for a reason. The ninth annual Polar Plunge is happening this weekend, and you're encouraged to join in on the fun while helping to benefit Special Olympics Alaska.

To get signed up head to specialolympics.org, set up your team page and a fund-raising page. You need to raise or donate a total of $125 and you will be able to jump in the ice of Goose Lake.

All proceeds go to Special Olympics Alaska to provide sports training and competition for people with intellectual disabilities.
