About this Event:
Are you looking for something thrilling to do for a good cause?! Sign up for the Polar Plunge and help fund the GWL Skatepark in memory of Dale Hirrel.
Dale always dreamed of having a place to skate in his town and with your help we are making his dream come true! Dale was taken from us in a tragic car accident in April 2016. He always brought smiles and light into his friends and family’s lives and his favorite activity was skateboarding! Skateparks build and sustain healthy communities, providing a safe and controlled environment for people to practice the art of skateboarding, develop their skills and share tips and experiences with one another. Learn more about our mission and Dale’s story at www.gwlskatepark.com.
