Special Olympics Georgia Hosts Fourth Annual Polar Plunge Fundraiser

ATLANTA, Feb. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Plungers will "bear" the cold waters at LanierWorld at Sunset Cove on February 16  to support the athletes of Special Olympics Georgia in the fourth annual Polar Plunge fundraiser.

The Polar Plunge is one of the "coolest" fundraisers where participants raise money and plunge into the chilly waters of Lake Lanier. The plungers bring quite the excitement to the fundraiser by dressing up in crazy costumes and celebrating the success of their fundraising in which all of the proceeds benefit Special Olympics Georgia.

Participants must raise a minimum of $50 to plunge. All plungers will receive a commemorative Plunge long sleeve t-shirt and additional incentives and prizes will be given to the plungers who raise $150 and more. Registration begins at 11 a.m. and is until 1p.m. The Plunge is at 2 p.m.

Time is ticking but it's not too late to get involved! Participants can also set up their own online FirstGiving fundraising page at http://www.firstgiving.com/soga/polar-plunge-2013. For more information and to register, please visit www.PolarPlungeGA.com. Please join us for a wild and crazy event that is fun for the whole family!
