Tulsa Polar Plunge

What is it? The Tulsa Polar Plunge is an event for which Special Olympics Oklahoma raises money for its competitions. This is a great way to support our athletes and make sure they have a safe, fun time when they compete.

What can I do? In terms of service hours, you have two options: become a Plunger for 1 service hour OR service hours will be given for each increment of $10 you donate (1 for $10, 2 for $20, etc.)

To donate: https://www.mysook.org/TulsaPolarPlunge/Team/View/141480/Jenks-Project-Unify

To become a Plunger: you will need to go to mysook.org and register for the Polar Plunge. When you do, be sure to join our team (Jenks Project Unify), or it doesn’t count. The minimum cost to participate is $75, virtual or physical. You can pay that money directly or raise donations from your peers. At the Polar Plunge on February 27, 2021, come between 10am and 10:45am to get signed in. It starts at 11am, at which point each team will take turns jumping into cold water to show our support. If you do decide to come, please jump with us! Only Plungers will be allowed near the pool.

Graduation Volunteer Update!

Below are details for tomorrow evening. This is a reminder for those who signed up to volunteer! Very important!
Mrs. Fouts (person in charge) can be reached at (918) 766-5536 if anyone has questions tomorrow.
When you arrive and head up the escalators, you should already find boxes of programs at each set of doors on either side of the arena.
Reminder: This year, we need our Key Club volunteers to get to the Mabee Center a little earlier than normal.
Please enter the Mabee Center through the west entrance (facing Walmart) with their IDs by 5:15pm.
IDs will be checked by security (who should also have a list of volunteer names).
The names of volunteers who signed up first are: Thank Khai, Cing Kim, Cing Guite, Lian Nuam, Maya Reeves, and Cing Niang. They have your name on a list that you are helping out and are counting on you!
Please divide the number of volunteers so that there are students passing out programs at each entrance along the top level. Some can be stations near the escalators, and some can be stations on the opposite side. Guests should be allowed to enter starting around 5:30pm.
Once everyone has taken their seats and it looks like no more programs need to be passed out, you are free to leave (around 7pm).
Contact specialprojects@jenkskeyclub.org or (918) 766-5536 if you have any questions.
