Local Special Olympics fundraisers

As a person who has always supported and often been involved with the Special Olympics Program, I didn't want to miss the opportunity to let you know how a local fund raiser for the program fared.

The Lake Sun reported on Tuesday that even with the tough economy, the annual "Cops on Top" event raised more than $5000! The event has officers from the Osage Beach Department of Public Safety stranded on the roof of the local HyVee Gas Station and Convenience Store for 12 hours. This event is the annual kick off to the "Polar Bear Plunge" which is going to be held tomorrow, February 28th.

The Lake Sun also reports that the "Polar Bear Plunge" takes "freezin' for a reason" to a whole new level. Participants will take a dip in the VERY cold Lake of the Ozarks to raise money for Special Olympics. More than 500 people have already signed up for this years event - promising to make this year's event one of the biggest ever!

Since 1996, "Cops on Top" and "Polar Bear Plunge" have had over 5,000 people participate - raising more than $1,000,000.00 for Special Olympics. WAY TO GO GUYS!

When I hear about events like this, and the people who go above and beyond to help a cause, it  REALLY make me proud to be a part of this community.
