Towson University is teaming up with the Special Olympics Maryland an “unbearably” fun time hosting a true Maryland tradition: a polar plunge on Dec. 5 on the lawn in front of the TowsonTown Garage starting at 11 a.m.
To be eligible to dive, participants must have $50 in pledges or donations. All money will go to support the athletes who train and compete in Special Olympics Maryland throughout the year.
Each participant will receive a plunge long sleeve t-shirt. They will also receive a concession voucher for the Towson’s men’s basketball game post-plunge.
As their donations increase, participants will receive the following:
- $500 – a plunge fleece
- $1,000 – a plunge sports bag
- $2,500 – a Columbia jacket
- $5,000 – a tablet.
The plunge is open to Towson University faculty, staff and students and the entire community. Participants can plunge as an individual or as a group.
