TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – The Cherokee Nation Marshal Service, Sequoyah High School H.O.P.E. club and other local businesses, schools and organizations jumped in to frigid waters on March 7 to raise money for Special Olympics Oklahoma at the Tahlequah Polar Plunge.

Hosted at the Arrowhead Resort on the Illinois River near Tahlequah, the Tahlequah Polar Plunge is one of 14 events held across the state from January to March every year.

This year, plungers raised $21,000 for Special Olympics Oklahoma. A portion of the money raised will go towards helping support Special Olympic athletes here in the Tahlequah area, and the rest will go towards helping fund future events such as Special Olympic Summer Games held in May in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
