‘Ice Out Plunge’ in Winthrop to Benefit Special Olympics Maine, Saturday, April 5 [AUDIO]
We love supporting Special Olympics Maine and the Maine Law Enforcement Torch Run every year on the Moose during our annual 'Request-a-thon.' Through the years, with your help, we have raised tens of thousands of dollars. Now, we get to help out with a brand new exciting event. It's the very first 'Ice Out Plunge.' Join us Saturday, April 5 at Winthrop Town Beach, Maranacook Lake.
The Ice Out theme relates to the time frame when the ice finally clears on the Lakes in Maine. The water will still be frigid but should be cleared enough for ourthe brave plungers.
In order to participate in the plunge each person must raise a minimum of $100. Those who do, will receive a premium long-sleeve commemorative T-shirt. Additional incentives apply for additional monies raised & turned in at registration. The plunge is open to everyone aged 8 and older. You can enter as an individual or as a team (5 or more members)
Plunge registration opens at 10:00 a.m., the 'Ice Out Plunge' will be at 12 noon and the 'Post Plunge Party' will follow at the Winthrop American Legion, right on Bowdoin Street in Winthrop.
It's going to be a blast...a cold blast, but very rewarding. If you want to participate go here or pick up registration packets at the Winthrop Police Department, 15 Town Hall Lane or at the American Legion Hall.
