05Mar Rep. Pscholka hits icy water to benefit Michigan Special Olympics Categories: News Michigan’s winter has been frigid, and it was an even colder day than usual for state Rep. Al Pscholka as he took a dive into a pool of icy water on the lawn of the state Capitol as part of the Legislative Polar Plunge to support Michigan Special Olympics.Rep. Pscholka, dressed as the Grinch, braved below-freezing temperatures for the fourth consecutive year to participate in the event. The Stevensville Republican in past years has taken the plunge dressed as a shark, a bear and a penguin. More than a dozen lawmakers this year participated in the event, with temperatures in Lansing reading just 16 degrees.“It’s been an honor to participate for the fourth year in a row and raise money for the Special Olympics and all of the athletes it supports,” said Pscholka. “With so many of my colleagues coming out to bear the cold, not only does this event raise awareness for this worthy cause, but it’s fun too.”Nearly 21,000 athletes annually participate in Special Olympics Michigan, which is a year-round program offering sports for those with intellectual disabilities. The ultimate goal of Special Olympics is to help persons with intellectual disabilities participate and receive respect as members of their communities.“Many of my constituents in the 79th District participate in the Special Olympics, and some have advanced to national competitions,” Pscholka said. “This is a small price to pay to support them.”
