Aquatica’s Polar Plunge – Special Olympics Florida Fundraiser
Aquatica’s annual fundraiser for Special Olympics Florida is a great opportunity for guests to have fun in the name of a great cause!
On February 1st 2014, Aquatica will have dropped the wave pool temperature to a chilly ‘teeth clenching’ level especially for this event. At just above freezing, the water definitely tests the bravery of thousands of fearless competitors each year who have so far raised $750,000 sine 2010.
The ‘Brrrrave‘ fundraisers don’t have it too bad though, one they’ve dashed into the chilly pool, they are free to enjoy the rest of the water park’s luscious landscaping and heated water thrills in that adorable Florida sunshine!
If you’d love to take part, do your bit for the Special Olympics effort, then please register as soon as possible for this crazy and cool event!
Each year, more and more participants have joined the fun, and 2014 looks set to be the biggest yet!
