Chase Trimmer, Senior Development Director, Philadelphia Region for Special Olympics Pennsylvania and Nick McIllwaine, from Beasley’s WMMR Preston & Steve Show and Captain of Team WMMR, discussed the mission of Special Olympics and the upcoming Polar Plunge, February 10 at Citizens Bank Park.  The mission of Special Olympics PA is to provide year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.  All training and competition opportunities are provided free of charge to the athletes and their families, enabling everyone to experience the benefits of Special Olympics that extend well beyond the playing field.

They’re freezin’ for a reason!  Help celebrate over 50 years of Special Olympics at the Polar Plunge on Saturday, February 10th.   There will be games and a DJ and pools set up for your dip.  General Registration is $50 and all registrants will receive the Philadelphia Plunge T-Shirt.  Walk-ups are welcome but you can join Beasley Media Group and plunge with Nick and Team WMMR!
