OT Students Helped Raise $6,590 at Polar Plunge

February 23, 2012

OT Polar Plunge TeamThis winter, UW-Madison Occupational Therapy students joined forces with UW-Madison physical therapy students to form a combined team for the Polar Plunge called, "Cryotherapy is Indicated." The team consisted of about 30 members who took a giant leap into the icy waters of Lake Monona at Olin-Turville Park on Saturday, February 18th. They sported shirts and bare bodies with letters spelling out "WISCONSIN OT PT" and black warrior stripes. The Polar Plunge is an annual event that supports Special Olympics Wisconsin. In order to plunge, individuals must raise $75 in pledges and those who are "too chicken" can also fundraise and cheer from the sidelines. This year, Cryotherapy is Indicated raised $6,590, contributing to the grand total of $381,169 that the Polar Plunge raised for Special Olympics Wisconsin. Both disciplines are looking forward to doing the plunge again next year!

OT students are shown here jumping for a good cause.
