Students and staff plunge for a cause
It was a warm day for the Polar Plunge at Stillwater Area High School. More than 200 students participated in the Special Olympics fundraiser by jumping into a water tank. The air was a balmy 73 degrees but the water was a chilly 50. The event raised more than $26,000 for Special Olympics Minnesota and the Ponies TRUST Club which is designed to break down the barriers that separate those individuals with and without disabilities.
