VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Anne Robertson is 83-years-old - a great grandma- but is full of life.
Here's the response you'll get when you ask her age: "I've celebrated the 54th anniversary of my 29th birthday!"
She's gearing up for her third Polar Plunge benefitting Special Olympics Virginia.
"Well I think the Special Olympics is a special thing and once you've done it and seen them, you just have to go back again!" she said.
She seems to have a thing about swimming in frigid waters. She's the driving force behind a family tradition: Taking a quick dip in the Atlantic at the oceanfront on New Year's Day.
"Well it just seems like a fun thing to do!" she said.
Which explains her approach to her plunging style - she doesn't stop at the knees when she goes in.
"Heck no! Up to the neck. Well, I go under sometimes," Anne said.
For her dedication, News 3 presented her with a People Taking Action award along with a $300 Visa gift card from our community partner Southern Bank.
