Hopworks Urban Brewery staff took the plunge to benefit Special Olympics on Saturday.
A team including brewers Ben Love and Speck Speckenbach threw themselves into the icy Columbia River as a part of a fund raiser to raise awareness and funds for the cause.
Every dollar counts, and the money goes to a great cause. Your donation will help support year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Through sport, the athletes of Special Olympics Oregon develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
