On Saturday, February 23rd a dozen crazy PTOEC volunteers participated in the Special Olympics – Illinois 2013 Polar Plunge fundraising event! They joined over 300 other plungers in raising $70,000 for Special Olympics.
Team PTOEC lead by Tom Biondo did a great job, earning over $4,800 – the second highest total of all 55 teams! Coach Bill Howard raised $1,288 himself, the 4th highest individual total. Way to go coach!
PTOEC member and Special Olympics Global Messenger Jennifer Harper pitched in by serving as a greeter for the Polar Plunge lunch and award ceremony that followed the event.
Thanks to everyone who participated and provided their support!
