Big Bear Lake Polar Plunge Saturday March 7th  


“I am taking the Polar Plunge to support Special Olympics Inland Empire”, determines City of Big Bear Lake Mayor David Caretto.

During the Polar Plunge, brave souls will run into the frigid waters of Big Bear Lake, to raise funds for Special Olympics athletes.  It is particularly significant this year, as the Special Olympics team of athletes, are coming to Southern California this summer. The WORLD GAMES will be the biggest sporting event in the world this year, and Big Bear Lake is one of the host cities for athletes competing in the games.

You're probably getting cold just thinking about it!  While the cold is temporary, the positive impact you will have on the lives of Special Olympics athletes will last a lifetime.  Your donation will enrich the lives of thousands of athletes with intellectual disabilities and their communities through sports, education, and athlete health.  

I will be joining my fellow Rotarians--Dave Stone, Richard Miller and Mike Curran on The Cave/First Mountain Bank Team.  Many other individuals and teams will be taking the Plunge to help Special Olympics.  The Big Bear Polar Plunge is the largest activity of this kind in the Southland. Help us make it great!!

Please help me reach our fundraising goal. For donating to the Big Bear Lake Polar Plunge visit: Also, donations to: The  Cave/First Mountain Bank Team.  If you prefer to make a contribution of cash or check, please contact me, and I will make arrangements to receive your donation.
