In Your Shoes has cancelled Sunday's Polar Plunge due to lack of interest, member Marjet Schoen said Thursday.

"In Your Shoes would like to thank all those who were willing to donate their time and talent.  We look forward to working with you in the future," she said.

The Polar Plunge organized by In Your Shoes, a giving circle, had been scheduled for noon to 2 p.m. at Lake Chauncy, on Lyman Street.

The proceeds were to support In Your Shoes, a "non-profit organization that provides emergency funds to any person who resides or works in Westborough," Schoen noted in an e-mail interview this week.

Sunday was to have been the group's first Polar Plunge since 2011, when 28 people hit the water to raise more than $10,000 for the organization.
