Team of the Month – Nipmuc High School!

24 04 2012

One of our 2013 Teams hit the ground running fundraising for expedition, and ended up right in the Atlantic Ocean.

The  Nipmuc team held a Polar Plunge fundraiser in March, raising money for their 2013 expedition to Ecuador and the Galapagos, where they all jumped into the ocean on a winter day for donations!

Polar Plunge

What’s the angle?  Nipmuc knew that past World Challenge teams have raised a lot of money by holding a Polar Plunge, and wanted to begin their fundraising with a success. The team members raised money individually, by having their family and friends donate money towards their expedition.

The average amount made by the Nipmuc team members was between $100.00 and $400.00!  One team member even raised $1000.00! Go Team!

How did they pull it off?  The team spread the word for the Plunge by sending messages via facebook, they made fliers to pass out to their friends and family, and sent out emails. The day of the Plunge, they all carpooled together to the beach. They had an EMT accompany them for the day for safety purposes. It took them awhile to figure out how to get to the water in Rhode Island, but after taking pictures and getting ready they all jumped in the ocean, staying in longer than they thought!  After they all went for pizza!

Congratulations Nipmuc, you’re our Team of the Month!
