Polar Plunge 2022 Stories _1500 _ 500 px_ _1_.png

Aimee Buckborough, a seasoned Special Olympics Ontario athlete, is well aware of the time, commitment and effort required to excel in sport. As a gold medal swimmer at Nationals, avid golfer and softball player, Aimee has always been willing to push herself outside of her comfort zone to pursue her best.

In keeping with this mindset, Aimee decided to try something new this year by participating in the Polar Plunge. With the water temperature drastically lower than your average community pool, Aimee was met with some initial nerves before her first Polar Plunge experience, but that didn't stop her!
