Polar Plunge is Coming! The Event is February 11th
#BeBoldGetCold because it's time to register for the Polar Plunge. Polar Plunge is a fundraising event organized by Special Olympics which supports WeSide Unified Activities in Westside.
Attached you will find information on how to register as a plunger and information you can share on how to donate to support Westside’s Unified Activities. The WeSide newsletter will also be updated with links to register to plunge and/or donate. All plungers must register and sign a waiver to plunge and are asked to have a minimum goal of $50 for donations. The $50 is a goal but not required in order to plunge.
