The Special Olympics Annual Mesquite Polar Plunge will take place on Saturday, January 27, at City Lake Aquatic Center, 200 Parkview Street. Registration begins at 8 a.m. with the plunge beginning at 10 a.m. Recruit your friends, grab a costume and come out to support our athletes in the Greater Dallas area. Take a plunge into the icy cold waters of City Lake Aquatic Center and help promote dignity, equality and opportunity for all people. Mayor Stan Pickett has also pledged to be the first one down the slide if $500 is raised in his name towards this important cause.
