Polar Plunge® 2018

At HBA, we are crazy about serving our community.  So crazy, in fact, that our team voluntarily and enthusiastically took a frigid dip in the Atlantic Ocean this February to benefit Special Olympics of Virginia.  This is the 13th year in a row that the HBA family joined the crowd of thousands who were crazy enough to jump into the Atlantic for fun! We had a great time on Saturday, even with the temperature barely getting out of the twenties.

Each year, we pick a different character or icon to dress up as. This year, we elected to dress up as dominos!

HBA raised $11,008.00 and broke our fundraising goal set this year. Our own Mike Ross, our top fundraiser, was the #8 Top Individual Fundraiser for the event, raising over $5,400.

Overall, the 2018 Polar Plunge in Virginia Beach raised over $1 million for Special Olympics Virginia.


All of us here at HBA want to thank all of our sponsors, who helped make our fundraising goal a reality!
