The Northern Athletics Conference Student Athlete Advisory Committee is organizing a team for all NAC student-athletes and fans at the 2012 Polar Plunge in Madison, Wis., in support of Special Olympics.
The NAC's SAAC team will be "Freezin' for a Reason" on Saturday, February 18, at Olin-Turnville Park on the shore of Lake Monona.
Lakeland College SAAC is sponsoring senior Dana Schmidt, a member of the women's soccer team who will represent the Muskies and takes the plunge.
The Polar Plunge is for everyone. There are two ways to participate and support Special Olympics, including something for people who prefer to keep their feet on dry land. Event participants can register to take the Plunge or sign up as "Too Chicken to Plunge". "Chickens" can still raise donations and join a team. They will even get their own t-shirt proclaiming "I was Too Chicken to Plunge".
If you want to register online, the team name is listed under "Northern Athletics Conference SAAC".
Additionally, NAC SAAC will be providing a meal for participants after the event at Edgewood College.
Interested parties should contact SAAC advisor Lindsey Vande Hoef at VandeHoefLK@lakeland.edu or 920-565-1564 for additional information on participation and transportation.
