Douglasville Police Officer Matt Underwood is taking the Polar Plunge to raise money for Special Olympics Athletes and needs your help to raise his goal amount of $1,000.
Here is what Officer Underwood said on his Special Olympics Georgia, Inc. Polar Plunge page:
"I have been involved with Special Olympics for over 15 years in a Law Enforcement capacity and a personal setting. My experiences include coaching unified sports in basketball, volleyball and softball with Special Olympic Athletes from Haralson County. It is my true belief that Special Olympic Athletes can teach us so many things about life in general that when applied to our lives we would be a much more caring and loving society. I am HUMBLED every single minute I spend with our athletes."
The plunge will take place at Lake Lanier on Feb. 16 at 2 p.m.

To support his plunge, make a donation towards Matt's $1,000 goal.
You can also make a check payable to “Special Olympics Georgia” and return it to him in an envelope at the Douglasville Police Department or mail it directly to their office at SOGA: Polar Plunge, 4000 DeKalb Technology Parkway; Suite 400, Building 400; Atlanta, GA 30340.
If you mail it, be sure to include his name or Douglasville Police Department so that the staff will know where to credit the contribution.
