Polar Plunge
Saturday, January 27, 2018, 8:00am - 10:00am

 

Polar Plunge

The annual "Polar Plunge" event will be held at Fruitridge Aquatic Center (4000 Fruitridge Road) in early 2017 as a fundraiser to benefit spinal cord injury victim Nick Rouse.  In 2008, Nick, a former Southgate Recreation & Park District Lifeguard, was injured while falling off a rope swing at a river, breaking his spine in two places resulting in paraplegia/borderline quadriplegia.  Over one million people in the U.S. suffer spinal cord injuries each year.  Approximately 10% of those injuries result in paraplegia. 

This event includes music, swimming, food, hot chocolate, and coversation with Nick who will eagerly watch his family, friends, and community members plunge into the cool pool water in his honor.  We hope you will join us for this meaningful "Freezin' for a Reason" fundraiser!
