Middle of Nowhere Polar Plunge
October 31, 2018
On Saturday, Dec. 1, at 2 p.m., the Middle of Nowhere Polar Plunge will take place at the Glasgow Civic Center. Join us for fun and a chance to raise funds to benefit our local Special Olympics Athletes, many of whom will be participating in the plunge. Come out and get Freezin’ for Reason for the athletes of Special Olympics Montana
This event is open to anyone that wishes to take the plunge and support our local Special Olympics Athletes. Too chicken to plunge? No problem, you can still be a part of the fun. Simply register as a chicken and raise pledges and receive incentives just like a regular plunger.
To register or for more information go to; http://www.somt.org/plunge. Then collect tax deductible pledges from friends and family. Participants must raise a $125 minimum per plunger (*$50 for youth 17 and under). Checks should be made out to Special Olympics Montana. Registration check-in starts at 12:30 p.m. at the Glasgow Civic Center and the plunge kicks off at 2 p.m.
More than 3,000 athletes from 65 Montana communities participate in local, area and state sports competitions that train athletes for life and build communities of acceptance, respect and inclusion. As a volunteer-driven movement, nearly 4,000 Montanans help organize and host local, area and state level competitions and other program services. As a year-round program, there is no off season.
As a 501c3 charitable nonprofit organization, Special Olympics Montana is funded primarily through the generosity of individuals, organizations and businesses across the state. Public support is the cornerstone of our existence. Please join us for this fun event and help provide opportunities for our local champions!
