We are so excited to announce our participation in the Area 11 Frozen Fans Polar Plunge! This unique event raises money for over 1,500 athletes in the Chester, York and Lancaster area.
These athletes are some of the most amazing people we have ever met! Their motto is “Let me win. But, if I cannot, let me be brave in the attempt.”
According to their website, the mission of Special Olympics is “to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for individuals with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympic athletes and the community.”
These athletes have seen improved physical fitness and motor skills, they gain self-confidence and a more positive self-image from their participation.
The Frozen Fans Polar Plunge is a way to raise money so these athletes can train in the sports they love. Each Polar Plunge participant sets a goal to raise a certain amount of money. Then, at noon Feb. 22 at Ebenezer Park in Rock Hill, we take the plunge into freezing, cold Lake Wylie!
Want to help? Miraclean has set a goal of $500 and we need your help! To donate, please visit our fan page at https://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/Miraclean/2014-frozen-fans-polar-plunge
Kristin Malone will represent Miraclean in the plunge.
Everyone is invited to watch (or take) the plunge!
Come on out and support our athletes.
