California Medical Facility staff took a chilly plunge into Lake Natoma in Rancho Cordova to raise funds for Special Olympics.

Using the Sacramento State Aquatic Center at Lake Natoma, the team raised $1,000 prior to the Feb. 8 event and during the event they raised another $350 for a total of $1,350.  They dubbed the event the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics.

Despite the rain and cold weather, the dedicated staff still dove into the cold water of the lake to support the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s efforts to raise funds for Special Olympics.
