Members of the new St. Thomas Special Olympics Club this week will be promoting and seeking support for the Polar Bear Plunge for Special Olympics that will be held next March in Minneapolis’ Lake Calhoun.

Special Olympics Club members will have two tables in the Murray-Herrick Campus Center from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each day this week. The tables will be located inside the first-floor Grill and outside the second-floor student dining room.

Club members will hand out information about the March 5, 2011, Polar Bear Plunge. You are invited to register and raise the $75 required to participate in the plunge, or you can support a “plunger” by donating to the UST Plunge Team.

Students, staff and faculty are welcome to participate. For more information, contact Addison Farrell, co-president of the St. Thomas Special Olympics Club, at acpetersfarr@stthomas.edu.
