Polar Plungers wanted to dive into Holland's icy waters to benefit Special Olympics

Brave Holland area residents are needed to plunge at Boatwerks Waterfront Restaurant Feb. 19 to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Michigan (SOMI) at the 2011 Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Polar Plunge!

Area Director Mark Dalman, who oversees the Special Olympics Michigan program in Ottawa and Allegan Counties says, “It is the most fun you will have this winter. It is exciting and crazy, so why wouldn’t you do it?

This is the first year Special Olympics Michigan is holding  a Polar Plunge in Holland and brave plungers are needed.

“It is the most exciting thing to happen in Holland this February! It is new, exciting, come out and help our athletes, Do something new, take the plunge and support children and adults with intellectual disabilities,” Mark said.

Anyone can take the plunge for a minimum donation of $50. Anyone interested in taking the plunge can pre-register online at www.somi.org. Individuals who don’t want to plunge can also collect donations to receive incentive prizes that bear the “Too Chicken to Plunge” logo and to attend the post plunge party.

All plungers receive incentive prizes and an official 2011 Polar Plunge t-shirt. Donation incentive prizes include a Polar Plunge blanket, a Polar Plunge sweatshirt or a Polar Plunge jacket. Funds are raised by collecting donations from friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, etc.
 
Plunge registration starts at 11 a.m., followed by the parade of costumes and Polar Plunge at 12:15 p.m. The post-plunge party and awards ceremony are scheduled to begin immediately following the plunge at Boatwerks Waterfront Restaurant.
