Polar Poppers Freezin’ for a Reason at CHS

polar plunge 22With the sun peeking out from behind the clouds and a sizable crowd on hand at CHS to watch, an intrepid handful of students and administrators stood up for CHS Unified Sports by participating in the Polar Pop, which changed from the annual Polar Plunge due to COVID-19.

As opposed to jumping into a pool for the Polar Plunge, the Polar Pop includes a bucket of water being dumped over one’s head, much like the Ice Bucket Challenge. Amid the shouts from the raucous crowd in the CHS courtyard and in classrooms adjacent to the courtyard, poppers could be heard screaming “Freezin’ for a reason” and “Live unified” as the water cascaded over them. 

One of the most important fundraisers at CHS, the Polar Pop raises money for CHS’ Unified Sports, in which students with developmental disabilities pair with students without disabilities to work together to achieve success on the playing field and beyond. In order to maintain and increase unified sports at CHS, the program aims to raise $5,000. All proceeds go directly to the unified sports programs: cheerleading, bocce, and track and field.
