ATLANTA, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It won't be this chilly for long, so don't miss one of your last chances of the season to "bear" the cold waters in 40-degree weather Saturday at LanierWorld at Sunset Cove. The fourth annual event, called the Polar Plunge, benefits the athletes of Special Olympics Georgia.

The plungers bring quite the excitement to the fundraiser by dressing up in crazy costumes and celebrating the success of their fundraising in which all of the proceeds benefit Special Olympics Georgia. For those who do not love the Polar Bear habitat, areas will be set to keep you warm, such as heated areas, warm concessions and fun souvenirs.

All plungers will receive a commemorative Plunge long sleeve t-shirt and additional incentives and prizes will be given to the plungers who raise $150 and more. Registration is 11 a.m. until 1p.m. The Plunge is at 2 p.m.
