AQUATICA TO HOST THE 4TH ANNUAL SPECIAL OLYMPICS FLORIDA POLAR PLUNGE
Take the Plunge on Saturday, February 2
ORLANDO, Fla. (January 24, 2013) – Aquatica is pleased to be hosting the fourth annual Special Olympics Florida Polar Plunge® 2013 on Saturday, February 2. Individuals and teams, alongside Special Olympics athletes, families, sponsors and community members will experience heart-warming and bone chilling-extremes as they take the plunge into the cold Aquatica wave pool to raise money for Special Olympics Florida.
Hundreds of “Plungers” are expected to participate in the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Florida – and there’s still plenty of time to join in this unique, wacky event. In addition to jumping into cold water for a good cause, a highlight of the annual event is the array of crazy costumes Plungers are encouraged to wear in the name of fun.
You can take the Plunge individually or with a team, and everyone who raises a minimum of $100 may Plunge. For just $100 in pledges, Plungers will receive admission to Aquatica, an All-Day Food Pass, official Polar Plunge® T-shirt and two spectator passes. There are numerous incentives for individuals to raise additional funds, including tickets to Aquatica, SeaWorld and Discovery Cove. In addition, plungers can stay and enjoy Aquatica all day after the event.
Plungers can create their own Plunge Web Page for friends, family and co-workers to visit and donate online. It’s quick and easy through FirstGiving.com.
