NRG Media is a supporter of Special Olympics in a number of our markets. Recently, our markets in Lincoln, Nebraska and Wausau/Stevens Point, Wisconsin came out to show support of the athletes.
First up – B107.3 helped host Special Olympics Nebraska Annual Polar Plunge. It was a beautiful, sunny day at Holmes Lake with a great turn out for the event …PLUS… fantastic costumes and themes. Over 160 plungers took the dip, representing themselves and 34 teams. B107.3 raised over $35,000 for Special Olympians. The youngest plunger was just 7 years old and our oldest was 71 years old.
Continuing our support – Hot 96.7’s Tonya Haze spent an evening with Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes, coaches, and volunteers. Tonya was the emcee for the evening at the Celebration Ceremony for the State Winter Games in Wausau. Not only was she behind the mic as the Olympic flame was “lit”, she did a Facebook Live before the event where she got to interview some very special athletes.
