Earlier this week, members of the Upper School Polar Bear Plunge Club zoomed with Special Olympics athlete John Wolfe and enjoyed their own plunge while on the call. They raised $1,822 for the Special Olympics of Maryland! Students got creative and dumped cups of cold water on themselves, ran into a cold shower, or even jumped into an inflatable pool outside. We are grateful for club president Charlotte Wright, ’22, for organizing this event.
The virtual event was also covered by WBAL and mentioned in the nightly news on January 27th. Watch the story and see the "plunge" here: https://www.wbaltv.com/article/cool-schools-plunge-polar-bear-plunge-2021/
