Take the Plunge at Winter Water Safety Day

Take the Plunge at Winter Water Safety Day

Water safety is always a legitimate concern, especially in the valley where many households have backyard pools and there is an abundance of community pools. In 2016 alone, there were 72 drowning incidents, resulting in 21 total fatalities, in the Phoenix metro area. These devastating accidents can be reduced by being aware of the dangers of water and being attentive and alert around swimming pools.

To advocate for water safety, the city of Peoria will hold it’s annual Winter Water Safety Day and Polar Plunge on Saturday, January 7 at 8 am. All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend the event and get involved!

It’s free to participate and enjoy the morning activities at the Sunrise Pool (21321 N. 86th Drive). It will be a brisk morning swim, as the pool isn’t heated after November and the water temperature is estimated to be in the low 40’s.

All participants who are brave enough to swim across the cold water will receive a free shirt celebrating their accomplishments. Tax-deductible donations are being accepted, and $20 will provide a two-week swim lesson for a local child.

Don’t miss out on this awesome opportunity to support water safety and make a difference in the community! Please visitĀ the Peoria website for more information.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
