State troopers are teaming up with Bass Pro Shops to help Louisiana’s Special Olympics. The outdoor mega-store and state police will host their first Polar Plunge this Saturday called “Freezin’ for a Reason.” They plan to make it an annual event. Those who are courageous enough will jump into a freezing cold pond to raise money for our state’s Special Olympics athletes.
State trooper Russell Graham says, “It’s a fundraising event so we can better support Louisiana Special Olympics. We’re encouraging the public to come out and jump in the pond.”
Again, the Polar Plunge takes place this Saturday at 9:00am at the Bass Pro Shop in Denham Springs. Click here for registration information.
