Polar Bear Plunge 2015
The Maryland State Police (MSP) Polar Bear Plunge benefits Special Olympics Maryland and the thousands of children and adults with intellectual disabilities who experience life-changing benefits of participating in the organization’s year-round training and competition programs-all at no cost to themselves and their families.
CEO Bruce Howard, and a few other Synergy employees took the Plunge this year on January 24th in support of Team Austin’s Ice-Cubes! The team was formed nine years ago by one of our employee’s, Melissa Shown, in honor of her son Austin, who has Down Syndrome. Austin has had the honor of participating in the sports of bowling, basketball and track & field… and has loved every minute of it! It was all possible because of the success of the Polar Bear Plunge! We are proud to announce that with the help of sponsors Austin’s Ice Cube raised over $9,000! Thank you to everyone who participated and made donations to this great cause.
