The Basement Doctor was proud to be the presenting sponsor of the 16th annual Polar Plunge on February 3rd at its new location, Express Live! All proceeds from the plunge went directly to support 26,000 Special Olympics Ohio athletes. This fun event included a costume contest and an after-party hosted by DJ MDizzle.
Special Olympics has made it their mission to ensure that no athletes or their families are financially responsible for participating. Similar to last year, all plungers were required to raise a minimum of $75 ($50 for students) in pledges. This year, plungers had the option to register as ‘Too Chicken To Plunge’ and were required to raise a minimum of $30. The event was a success raising over $108,000 total!
As well as our sponsorship, Team Basement Doctor had 29 participating plungers and raised over $1,500! Many employees made donations and were present for the event to show their support.
“It was great to see so much community support for this wonderful organization. I am proud to be a part of the Polar Plunge year after year,” said Ryan Bolin, Sales Manager for The Basement Doctor. “Looking forward to seeing many new faces in 2019!”
Team Basement Doctor doubled in size this year and we hope to grow even more next year! For more information about Special Olympics Ohio, please visit their site here.
