On a blustery February on a Minnesota lake... Okay so it was in the 50s. But the Prior Lake Rotarians participating in the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics MN would tell you the water was plenty cold! Six Rotarians and our Youth Exchange Student Peang, along with his host dad Tom, all plunged in and made it out on the other side. As a team, Prior Lake Rotary raised $3,893, which placed us 6th overall for any team! 
Host dad Tom Rykken, Paul Hofslien, Manny Perez, Doug Scalia, Paul Perez, Guy Selinske, HarryAlgyer, and Peang in the forefront.
Because of everyone who jumped, and from the generous pledges, we will give more than 8,100 athletes the opportunity to participate in the Athlete Leadership and Healthy Athletes Programs, work at the Special Olympics Minnesota state office, and best of all, train and compete in a variety of sports all year.
