As the year comes to a close, we would like to share some of the accomplishments your support has made possible for the more than 24,000 athletes we serve.
It might not be covered in ice, but the Polar Plunge at Sea World’s Aquatica is definitely Central Florida’s coolest event. Polar Plunge is an event where anyone can fundraise for Special Olympics Florida and earn the privilege of plunging into the chilled down wave pool at Aquatica (as well as some other pretty cool incentives).
For 10 years, St. Lucie County athlete Mark has heard the cheers of friends and family as he competed in Special Olympics basketball, softball, golf, bowling or track and field. And thanks to the work of everyone at Healthy Community, the sounds of those cheers will never fade.
If you’ve just landed on our blog for the first time, let me say welcome! This month, Special Olympics Florida is proud to launch our newly redesigned website and blog. In addition to debuting our refreshed look, we are excited to offer you other updated features, like a robust calendar of events and competition, easier access to information from our 51 county programs and, of course, more stories and photos featuring the heart of our organization – our athletes.
