Take the Polar Plunge, and help to raise a $20,000 goal benefiting the Special Olympics Southern California – Inland Empire Region! Participants of the Polar Plunge will race into the frigid waters of Big Bear Lake. Each Plunger sets their personal goal of how deep they want to go, from just ankles wet, to going in all the way. Be invigorated like never before!
Individuals who take the Polar Plunge challenge are asked to raise at least $50 through pledges from family, friends and co-workers. Participants who reach this goal will get an official Polar Plunge t-shirt. Special Olympics supporters who prefer to stay out of the water can opt to register as a “Chicken.” They receive an “I’m too Chicken to Plunge” t-shirt, which helps raise money for the Special Olympics charity. Additional prizes are given to people who raise more than $50, and also for those with the most creative costumes. “All it takes is a few seconds in the chilly water for plungers to discover why we refer to it as Freezin’ for a Reason,” said Special Olympics Southern California Regional Director Abbey Leffler. “They will immediately feel their hearts warm-up with joy because they know they are giving to a great cause. Nothing is too cold for a warm heart!”
Where: Swim Beach, 41218 Park Avenue, Big Bear Lake, CA 92315
When: Saturday, March 10th, 2012. Registration begins at 10:00am. Actual Plunge is at Noon.
