Polar Spray Benefits Special Olympics

The third annual Special Olympics Polar Spray is happening on Saturday, February 10  in the City of Hartford at 9 a.m. The event is held at Bernd Park.

Jackie Infalt is one of the organizers, and told WTKM News that the event, which benefits Special Olympics, is open to anyone.

"This is open to anyone...anyone ages two to 100! We arrive at the Hartford Fire and Rescue Department between 8:30 and 9 a.m. We turn in our pledges. We ask people to try and get donations for Special Olympics, and anyone who collects $100 in donations will get a special Polar Spray t-shirt! You don't have to donate, you can just come and participate. The last two years we have raised over $8,000."

Last year, the Polar Spray event reached their goal of $5,000 and two years ago $7,600 was donated to Special Olympics.                                             

All of the donated funds go toward the Special Olympics programs.
