Who's ready to get out of the house and have a little fun for an awesome cause? It's here, and to be honest, this is probably THE Winter to do the plunge to benefit the Special Olympics of Michigan if you've ever thought about it. It's been a pretty mild Winter and even though the lake is cold, it's not looking like they are going to have to cut through 6 inches of ice to cut a hole for people to make the jump to benefit some incredible kids who could really use a hand.
It's a great weekend of cabin fever relief that starts off on Friday night with early registration for the nearly 300 expected plungers this year. After all, why wouldn't we have a near record amount? Who's got a better plunge location that Muskegon Lake? After you get checked in Friday night, the Pre Splash Bash will be going on with Northbound playing some great live music, some cool raffles, maybe a drink special or two and of course the delicious Fricano's Pizza! Saturday, they actually tailgate in the morning....yes...why not tailgate for an event of this magnitude? Then the party gets underway at about 12 so you can see all the costumes, themes and friends ready to take the plunge....with the plunging starting at 2:30. After everyone is dried off and warm...awards, gift bags, raffle prizes, pizza, pizza and more pizza and a party atmosphere you'll find nowhere else all Winter long!
The Muskegon Polar Plunge is inching closer and closer to the $1,000,000 mark of money raised and the 2019 event is on pace to be the biggest yet! Todd Dunham has been a part of this great event for 12 years or so now, and we got together at Fricano's to talk about this years plunge....take a listen.
The challenge is on!! Let's make it the biggest and best Polar Plunge yet! 2019 is off on a great foot and if everyone chips in a little on something as awesome as the Polar Plunge, the athletes of the Special Olympics of Michigan will be assured the support they need for the great work the organization does for them and their games! If you can't bear the frigid waters, come to the Pre Splash Bash on the 25th or just hit Fricano's for a while on the 26th to be a part of all the fun!
