Polar Plunge Is Freezing Fun

Polar Plunge Is Freezing Fun

The Oakland County Polar Plunge took place Saturday morning at the Rochester Hills Brewing Company. Some went solo, others went as a pair, and the more daring even tried a cannonball, but everyone had smiles on their faces in support of a good cause. You can show up and donate. The group holds fundraisers throughout the year for Special Olympics Texas.

The Iona Prep Plungers have been first among all participating schools seven of the nine years since the Polar Plunge came to Westchester.

"Special Olympics is something that is important to us because people aren't known for their disabilities, but for who they are, as special as a person". "The energy that everyone at Catholic brings to the table is unmatchable!" "We support it, between this and law enforcement, torch run, and everything Special Olympics Oregon". Overman said the Scottsbluff Polar Plunge is the only event that offers hot tubs - a nice luxury after experiencing the cold water.

Helicopter Crashes In The Grand Canyon
According to Papillion Airway's website, the carrier flies roughly 600,000 passengers a year on Grand Canyon and other tours. Local media reported the Eurocopter EC130 helicopter, whose operator was unknown, was traveling on a tour.

This is just one of the fundraising efforts for the more than 16,000 Special Olympics athletes.
