#QuakersPlunge for #IndyPlunge and Special Olympics
#QuakersPlunge for #IndyPlunge and Special Olympics

The morning couldn't have been more beautiful, with a bright blue sky and plenty of sunshine. According to @SeanWTHR it was 45 degrees when Team #QuakersPlunge raced into Eagle Creek in support of Special Olympics Indiana.

This marked the 50th year for the #IndyPlunge, where Freezin' for a Reason is the name of the game. Hundreds of people from throughout Central Indiana take part in the Polar Plunge, which includes costume contests, an Executive Challenge, and school plunges. 

For the first year, #QuakersPlunge took part in the Executive Challenge, raising $3000 from teachers, administrators and supporters. And that was just a portion of the more than $100,000 raised from today's event. 

Team #QuakersPlunge was led by PCSC Superintendent Scott Olinger, with fellow administrators Laura DelVecchio, Beth Shepperd, Julie Thacker, Pat Cooney, Kyle Tutterow, Devin Carter and Mel Siefert joining in the plunge. 

While the weather may have cooperated, the water was still plenty cold. But everyone who took part said it was well worth it for such an important cause. Thank you to the #IndyPlunge team for such a fun event, and to #SOIndiana for all they do for students and adults throughout Indiana.
