The Polar Spray Benefits Special Olympics

You can help raise money for Special Olympics. This is part of the Special

Olympics Polar Plunge, which is a Hartford based event. 

The Hartford Fire and Rescue Department will spray everyone down during a “Plunge Challenge.” It will be video taped and then added to the agency’s “Virtual Challenge.”

They need many coaches, athletes, families and friends to take this challenge with the Hartford Police Department and Fire Department.

Participates are encouraged to get friends, family or co-workers to sponsor you to help raise funds for Special Olympics, or you can simply participate...either way is okay. They need people to be there to take a chilly spray for the team!

Anyne, who raises $100 will get the Official Special Olympics Polar Spray T-shirt. Anyone who wants to donate to “Team Hartford” here is the link; Check out Hartford Special Olympics 8-31's team fundraising page for Special Olympics Wisconsin (classy.org)
