2017 Greater Cincinnati Polar Plunge

The Batavia High School Business Professionals of America group once again leapt to the top as the top school fundraising team.

The Grater Cincinnati Polar Plunge is the Chill of a Lifetime! Join us for the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics.
Raise a minumum of $75 (or $50 for Polar Bears under 18) and take a chilly dip into a pool that will be set up in the Joe’s Crab Shack parking lot. Prizes for the top individual fundraiser and for the top fundraising teams in corporate/civic, school and law enforcement divisions. There are also prizes for the best individual and group costumes.

Can’t plunge, but still want to support Special Olympics? No problem. Register as Too Chicken to Plunge. You get a special Too Chicken shirt and are eligible for all other fundraising awards.

Either way, you’ll be Freezin’ for a Reason!
