Taking the Plunge

Charity, by definition, is the voluntary giving of help. Lake Shore will be taking the polar plunge to help raise donations for the special olympics for this year’s charity week. Donations started being collected on Monday the sixth!

Charity week consisted of five fun filled days. The week began with Pajama day, which is perfect because who really wants to get dressed on a Monday morning? Tuesday was camo day, then it was dress to impress, following with Lake Shore pride day, and to end our week, class color day as well as our donation.

The Polar Plunge is an activity where someone jumps into freezing cold water to help raise more money for the Aqua Freeze Festival, or in Lake Shore’s case, for the special olympics.The plunge will take place February 19, 2017 at the Aqua Freeze Festival. The Special Olympics is the world’s largest populations of children and adults with intellectual disabilities that play sports. They have training sessions and competitions year round for the athletes.

Rob Couck is the administrator involved with charity week, and Couck said “[a] website is being created to have people donate and depending on the amount of money raised, will determine the amount of people taking the plunge.” The Polar Plunge is an activity where someone jumps into freezing cold water to help raise more money for the Aqua Freeze Festival, or in Lake Shore’s case, for the special olympics.The plunge will take place February 19, 2017 at the Aqua Freeze Festival.
