It’s almost that time of year to jump into freezing waters for a good cause.
The South Bend Cubs are hosting a Polar Plunge fundraiser to benefit the Special Olympics on Saturday, Feb. 25. Registration starts at the Pepsi Stadium Club at Four Winds Field starting at 10 a.m. the day of the event. The plunge will take place at noon.
Between now and then, you or your group can raise funds for Special Olympics Indiana. A minimum $75 donation is required to take the plunge, or $50 if you have a student ID. Awards will be presented to the top fundraising teams and individuals.
“We’ve been doing this a long time now, and most people are familiar with the concept, but I think the newcomers are surprised at how much fun we have in spite of the cold,” said Special Olympics Indiana Director of Development Scott Furnish. “Whether you want to challenge yourself by taking the Plunge or you just want to support our athletes throughout the state, this is a great opportunity to get involved and to support what we do.”
There will be an “After Splash Bash” with additional prizes and complimentary food and drink for just $5.
