WFTV 9 Family Connection was proud to support the Special Olympics Florida’s Polar Plunge® at Aquatica, February 7, 2015 which is a statewide fundraiser during which individuals and teams, alongside Special Olympics athletes raise money for the privilege of Plunging into the chilled down wave pool. We even had our own plunge team!
It was a huge success, raising close to $300,000 for Special Olympic athletes. It's not too late to donate and help! Click here to donate today!
Why Do It
Everyone deserves a chance at a happy and purposeful life. Yet people with intellectual disabilities face doubt, barriers and low expectations. For many, Special Olympics is the only place where they find an opportunity to participate in their communities, develop belief in themselves, and feel like champions.
Make sure to join us next year if you missed the plunge this year!
