Polar Plunge Benefiting Special Olympics
La Crosse Polar Plunge, Black River Beach
Why Jump in Cold Water, You Ask? The Polar Plunge is the winter fundraiser for Special Olympics Wisconsin. Since 1999, plungers and their supporters have raised over $20 million for Special Olympics athletes, right here in Wisconsin. Donations support the 18 different Olympic-type sports offered year-round, including National and World Games, as well as free health care screenings to ensure optimal health and performance during competition. The outcome? The opportunity for over 10,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities to experience joy, pride and respect. Pretty amazing, huh?
It’s Easy to Take the Plunge Simply register on-line at www.plungewi.org and begin raising pledges to earn some cool prizes!
Want to help support more than 10,000 Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes without having to jump in the freezin’ cold water? Register as “Too Chicken to Plunge” and you will still have the ability to raise pledges, earn incentives, and be part of the fun! Chickens are a great addition to every Plunge Team and are great at giving moral support, cheering from the comfort of the sidelines, taking team photos and helping to celebrate your team’s success.
