We’re all pretty used to freezing temperatures, wind chills well below zero, mountains of snow, and all the other terrible things that come with Minnesota winters. Most of us do not willingly go outside without a very good reason during these times; much less do anything to add to the cold. Scott and Tina, the managers at our Subaru stores, feel differently.
This year they’ve decided to participate in the Polar Plunge. They’ll jump (or be pushed) into the frozen Lake Calhoun to show their support for the Special Olympics. Each store is trying to raise $5,000 for the cause. A portion of that will come from a $25 donation for each new Subaru sold during the month of February. We’re counting on family, friends, and anyone else who’d like to help out to make up the rest.
The manager of the store to hit the fundraising goal first gets to push the other one into the lake on March 4th. They’ve both been training hard and are pretty confident in their chances of winning—so now we ask you to pick a side and make a pledge.
Donations raised from the Polar Plunge help thousands of athletes train for and compete in the Special Olympics. Learn more here.
