Fourth Annual Polar Plunge to benefit 2020 Special Olympics Indiana
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The fourth annual Polar Plunge will be hosted by the South Bend Cubs, an event aimed at benefiting the Special Olympics Indiana.
The Polar Plunge will take place on February 29, 2020. Registration for the event begins at 10 a.m.
The Polar Plunge is a nationwide event that empowers those with intellectual disabilities.
In a press release, CEO of Special Olympics Indiana Jeff Mohler said: “The vision of Special Olympics Indiana is that sports will open hearts and minds towards individuals with intellectual disabilities and create inclusive communities across the state.”
The Polar Plunge raises money that will help support athletes in the Special Olympics Indiana. That support comes in the form of training and competitions at the local and state level.
In the past three years, Special Olympics Indiana has raised over $55,000, and their goal for 2020 is to raise $24,000.
The top donors will receive special prizes at the 2020 Polar Plunge, and the top donor will receive a free outdoor suite to a South Bend Cubs game in April and the chance to throw out a ceremonial first pitch.
Fans who donate $15 also have a chance to win four free tickets to a South Bend Cubs game.
