We’re counting down the days until the chilly plunge we’ve all been waiting for! Don’t forget about our three Polar Plunge events coming up:
February 18: Gonzales @ Cabelas March 11: Shreveport @ East Ridge Country Club March 18: Mandeville @ Fontainebleau State Park
Polar Plunge helps raise funds and awareness for our athletes. It is one of our largest fundraisers this year. Why not become apart of something that will create fun-filled memories and leave you feeling “cool”?
If you’re too chicken to plunge, you can donate and/or become a sponsor the events.
The official event of winter, the Polar Plunge® is one of Special Olympics Louisiana’s largest fundraisers. With the help of our Law Enforcement Torch Run comrades, individuals and teams from businesses and organizations, alongside our athletes and thousands of community members, experience heartwarming and bone chilling extremes as they take the plunge into the icy cold water during the winter! Individuals have committed to raise $50 or more to plunge into the icy cold water for thousands of Special Olympics Louisiana athletes! Get a thrill from the chill and join us at any one of our three event locations:
Gonzales- February 18th, 2017 @ Cabela’s Shreveport- March 11th, 2017 @ East Ridge Country Club Mandeville- TBA
If taking an icy dip isn’t for you, then come be a fan of fun as you watch folks Run, Plunge and Freeze for a great cause OR “Donate to a Plunger“. The Polar Plunge® is open to the public and also features musical entertainment, food, costumes, vendor displays, children’s activities and more. There is no fee to view the Plunge, but donations are always welcomed.
