Batavia students will be ‘Freezin’ for a Reason!’

Batavia students participating in last year’s Polar Plunge.
The Batavia High School Chapter of Business Professionals of America will be Freezin’ for a Reason on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2012 as they once again participate in the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics.

They have set a goal to raise $5,000 by the end of January. The team will be made up of students, teachers and parents. Even Batavia High School principal Jamie Corrill agreed to take the plunge this year after hundreds of students signed a petition to get him on the team.

What’s new this year? The Chicken Crew! Some Batavia team members have opted raise money to wear an “I’m too Chicken” shirt while they watch the rest of their team jump in the icy water.

Either way, Ohio’s Olympics athletes win.
