RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- More than 300 folks took the icy polar plunge this weekend at zephyr cove to raise money for the Special Olympics.

Each polar plunger raised $125 for the Special Olympics to compete in their events. News4 Chief Meteorologist Brandon Wholey even auctioned himself off for his ticket into the water.

"It's all about the cause. The Special Olympics is near and dear to our hearts. That's why we come out, donate our time, and a lot of people take it up a notch a little bit further by getting themselves into a speedo, which they really should be in, and take into the water!" said Dreu Murin, Polar Plunge host.

The team representing News4 had a goal of raising $500 and in the end, they were able to raise just over $1400 for the Special Olympics.

Thanks so much to the News4 team for once again taking part in the Polar Plunge event. Much like our people at Greater Nevada Credit Union, your participation and enthusiasm makes a very positive difference and helps lend to the overall success of that event. I know the Special Olympians are truly grateful for your efforts!
