BOZEMAN, Mont., Feb. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Showing their support for local athletes with intellectual disabilities, members of the WealthVest team took to the slushy, snow-covered Bozeman Pond this February to participate in the Big Sky Area Special Olympics Virtual Polar Plunge fundraiser.
In total, WealthVest's employees raised more than $1,625 for Special Olympics teams in the Big Sky area, which includes athletes in Gallatin, Madison, Park and Sweet Grass counties. Those funds will help ensure athletes are able to participate in a variety of sporting events throughout the year.
"Through the power of sports, Special Olympics is helping to build a more inclusive world for everyone," said Jackson Bolstad, captain of the WealthVest Polar Plunge team. "WealthVest is proud to be able to support these amazing athletes as they compete and build lifelong friendships through the sports they love."
The annual event looked a little different this year for participants, as COVID-19 restrictions prevented Big Sky Area Special Olympics from holding a traditional plunge. Instead, the organization asked participants to come up with a creative and safe way to show their support virtually.
The six members of the WealthVest team, whose office is conveniently located across the street from the Bozeman Pond, decided to make snow angels on the pond's snowy, water-covered surface. A video of the WealthVest team can be found on WealthVest's Facebook and LinkedIn pages.
