Twenty-Four Reitz football players will be braving the freezing temperatures to participate in the 2014 Polar Plunge at Scales Lake Beach in Boonville, In. Coach Hape says, “R” players will be plunging @ 11:45 Saturday February 1st in honor of Zach Harris. Special Olympics of Indiana is an organization that provides a great service for the state of Indiana and we are proud to be able to participate in this event.”
Special olympics are a not-for-profit organization that provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in more than 20 Olympic sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, reaching more than 11,000 athletes across Indiana. All proceeds from this event benefit Special Olympics athletes in our community, giving them the means to train locally and to compete at the state level in a number of Olympic-type sports.
