We took the Plunge! Frontline joined many other brave souls who took the Presidents Plunge on February 17th, 2014. The Presidents Plunge is an event in Bozeman, Montana to raise money to support Special Olympics Montana. We support several Bozeman non-profits in our community and had a team that raised over $100 each to take the plunge and jump into frigid water. It was a beautiful, sunny day but don’t let it fool you. That water was freezing! I guess we were lucky that it was 30 degrees that day and not -20 like we had a few weeks before. Montana weather can be brutal but Montanan’s are tough folks!
The best part of the event was how much fun everyone had! It was a great turn out with 141 fundraisers and early estimates say almost $60,000 was raised for the Bozeman event. The Simms Orange Crush team (in the orange and hip waders below) raised and impressive $12,000 and the Bozeman Deaconess Devils and Divas (red devil horns as pictured below) raised $8,000 making them some of the top fundraiser teams. Now that we have recovered and are all warmed up, a team of us from Frontline Processing will be traveling to the Special Olympics Winter Games in Whitefish, Montana. It will be a lot of fun to watch all the events and cheer on the athletes.
