Top Fundraising Team

Congratulations to our Cool Schools fundraising champion! Our Top Team is South River Snohawks who raised $14,404 for our first-ever Virtual Plunge. Thank you for your commitment and support of the Plunge and Special Olympics Maryland!


South River Snohawks

Over the last 10 years, I have had the privilege of getting to know many of the athletes who are actively involved with Special Olympics Maryland. The athletes get to participate in sports, clinics, competitions, and events that are possible because of Special Olympics Maryland. The inclusivity of this organization is why I plunge. The athletes get to experience grueling practices, participate in challenging games and competitions, experience personal growth, learn the benefits of teamwork, feel the thrill of victory, and about a thousand other things, thanks to SOMD. I love Special Olympics Maryland and everything it represents.
