I am joining 1,100 other brave souls to take the 6th Annual Special Olympics Florida Polar Plunge Aquatica Orlando on February 7, 2015!
The Special Olympics Florida’s Polar Plunge at Aquatica, is statewide fundraiser during which individuals and teams, alongside Special Olympics athletes raise money for the privilege of Plunging into the chilled down wave pool.
Aquatica is usually warm and tropical, but once each year they chill down their wave pool so you can experience the “thrill of the chill” all while supporting a great cause.
When I was younger I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer with Special Olympics, and after attending the Opening for the Sumer Games I was hooked back in to doing whatever I could to help!
Only the wave pool is chilled down, the rest of the rides are heated, so if you want to come and cheer me on, become a virtual plunger, or if you want to form a team of your own you can find out more about it here.
You can also follow my adventure on Twitter with the hashtag #PlungeFL!
