Polar Plunge for Special Olympics
We are Parker's Party!
Parker, who was born with Down Syndrome, is now a 5th-grader at St. Barnabas. He continues to light up our school and is making incredible strides in and out of the classroom. Together with Parker, his family and friends, teachers, and loved ones, Parker's Party took the plunge into freezing Lake Michigan (for the fourth year!) to raise support and awareness for people of every age and ability to have the same opportunities that we are all lucky enough to have every day. Second grade teacher Grace Sadowski started the plunge four years ago, and Parker's Party has been growing ever since! Over the past four years, the team has raised nearly $40,000 for Special Olympics! Check out this article about Parker's Party in The Beverly Review!
Join Parker's Party as they #makeasplash for Parker and all those who need a little extra love and support. If you cannot join them on March 1st, please consider donating to this amazing cause via their Polar Plunge page here. Last year, the team size more than doubled and so did their fundraising goal. And to top it off, Parker can now plunge with his team! Parker's Party invites all supporters to join them on this fun and freezing but equally heartwarming day!
