The Siena baseball team plunged into the icy waters of Lake George Saturday, November 16 to help raise money for Special Olympics. The Saints raised nearly $800 for the cause, and overall $60,000 was collected.
"We've had a great fall getting out and giving back to the community," head coach Tony Rossi said. "This was a fun event for a great cause, and something the guys were really looking forward too. Hopefully they thaw off in time for the season!"
Members of the team joined hundreds of others at the Shepard Park Beach in what has become in annual tradition. The goal is to get friends, family, colleagues and other donors to sponsor each individual's plunge, ultimately raising thousands of dollars to help the Special Olympics reach their fundraising goal, which this year is $1 million.
