Polar Bear Plunge: please support our Special Olympics, Saturday, February 6, 2016!

Special-Olympics.jpgKaren Richards, our Board President, will be participating in the Polar Bear Plunge for her third year in a row. She has braved the VERY chilly waters of Georgina in Support of Special Olympics Ontario.

The money raised through this plunge stays in the community to help fund programs like basketball, softball, bocce, rhythmic gymnastics, soccer and swimming, as well as providing incredible athletes with an intellectual disability the opportunity to travel to competition, meet new friends and take part in the sports they love.

According to Karen, "Jumping into sub-zero temperatures is a small price to pay to see the smiles on the athletes face when they get the chance to compete in a sport they love."
