Four Berry Moorman Employees Raise over $2,000 for Special Olympics Michigan
On February 19, 2011, four brave Berry Moorman team members jumped into the icy waters of the Detroit River to raise money for Special Olympics, Michigan. Linda Reyna, Mariuca Rofick, Maryann Szpont and Caitlin Murphy raised over $2,400 for intellectually challenged children and earned the privilege of freezing their toes off in the 2011 Polar Plunge.
The Plunge Team sported matching Berry Moorman hockey jerseys and Detroit Athletic Club robes and jumped into balmy 32 degree water. They were greeted with below freezing air temperatures and whipping winds as they jumped back out. The jump was shown on the Channel 4, 6 o’clock news. The Special Olympics Michigan puts on athletic events for intellectually challenged children around the state of Michigan.
