Küryakyn takes the plunge for Special Olympics Wisconsin

With spring right around the corner everyone here at Küryakyn is beginning to think warm thoughts.  Daytona Beach, FL, Laughlin, NV, and Myrtle Beach, SC are a couple of the warm places Team Küryakyn tried to keep in mind while they went for a swim in freezing water to benefit Special Olympics Wisconsin Feb 24th.

The “Polar Plunge” event hosted by Special Olympics Wisconsin took place at Halfmoon Lake in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and contributed close to $70,000. Team Küryakyn raised nearly $1,500 to place in the top 10 of fundraising teams at the event. For more information on the upcoming “Polar Plunge” events in Wisconsin and how to contribute, visit the Special Olympics Wisconsin page here.
