Blugold Dining will be Freezin' For a Reason

This weekend our Blugold Dining team will be Freezin' for a Reason when we take the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Wisconsin. The Polar Plunge is a cool event where supporters raise donations and jump into frozen bodies of water.

Special Olympics provides sports training and competition for nearly 10,000 athletes with cognitive disabilities in 18 different sports year-round.

But Special Olympics is about so much more than the joy of sports. According to a recent study, 80% of families in the United States say they have seen improvements in their family member's self esteem, self confidence, social skills, friendships and health thanks to their participation in Special Olympics*.
