Orlando Fun and Food is asking all their readers to help them by donating money to help support the Special Olympics here in Florida. Jason, the owner of Orlando Fun and Food has decided to take the plunge into the waters at Aquatica on February 7th, 2015 for the Polar Plunge! The Polar Plunge is a 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.
So why has Jason decided to take the Polar Plunge?
Everyone deserves a chance at a happy and purposeful life. Yet people with intellectual disabilities face doubt, barriers and low expectations. For many, Special Olympics is the only place where they find an opportunity to participate in their communities, develop belief in themselves, and feel like champions.
By participating in the Polar Plunge,we are helping to reach more people who want to participate in Special Olympics!!!
