Southern Minnesota Credit Union Hosting Unique Polar ‘Plunge’ Saturday Afternoon
There is plenty to do this weekend in Faribault and for that matter Southern Minnesota. There is a polar plunge in the more traditional sense of the word at Camp Omega this weekend, but there is another type of 'plunge' that will be happening right off one of Faribault's busiest streets on Satruday afternoon. Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union in Faribault is offering up a special and unique 'plunge' in their parking lot to support Special Olympics Minnesota.
According to a news release from Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union, they will be "hosting a unique Polar Plunge at their branch right on 4th St NW all in support of Special Olympics Minnesota. Since there is not a traditional Plunge event (into a frozen lake) in Faribault – the group has designed their own! They’ll be freezin’ for a reason! The local fire department is joining in on the fun by bringing a fire truck to park right outside of the Affinity Plus Faribault branch as cold water is dumped all over the participants. The Faribault police department will also be showing up and bringing their support. It’s all for a great cause!"
The 'plunge' will take place beginning at 1pm tomorrow, Saturday, February 19th, at the Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union located along 4th Street NW.
If nothing else it might be fun to watch people squirm around after being drenched in cold water, as Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union stated in their press release, they will be "Freezing for a reason."
