      Special Olympics Nevada to Host Southwest Polar Plunge

      Special Olympics Nevada (SONV) is encouraging local residents to “Plunge with a Purpose” this season and take an icy dive for charity at the Mesquite Polar Plunge, beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 29, at the Rising Star Sports Ranch Resort.

      The Polar Plunge is a national movement to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics and its athletes. Plungers are asked to raise a minimum of $125 each to participate and take the chilly dive in support of children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Registration includes a Polar Plunge long-sleeve T-shirt and festivities such as contests, games, refreshments and awards for top fundraisers and best costumes. Supporters not up to the plunge itself may also raise money as a “chicken” and receive the shirt but stay nice and dry. Registration and sponsorship opportunities are available at www.mesquitepolarplunge.com.

      All proceeds from the Mesquite Polar Plunge benefit SONV to continue to showcase the capabilities and achievements of individuals with intellectual disabilities. Along with providing free year-round sports and competition programs for more than 3,250 athletes, SONV encourages education through Unified Sports and the Sports Partnership Program; and is committed to improving the health and well-being of athletes through a variety of screenings and programs.
