Chilton School District staff and students are taking a plunge into icy Lake Winnebago to raise money for Special Olympics Wisconsin.

The Polar Plunge has helped Special Olympics raise nearly $18 million since they started the fundraiser in 1999. Chilton High School has a goal to reach $10,000 at this year’s event. The team has 56 members, including the school’s superintended Sue Kaphingst and principals Shawn Rude and Matt Kiel, 16 other staff members, a large number of high school students, and some alumni. The top fundraiser—high school student Mackenzie Mueller—has so far raised $765 toward the team’s goal. The team will jump on Feb. 15 at Menominee Park in Oshkosh. To donate to the Chilton Schools Polar Plunge visit or give a check to Special Olympics for Agency #4-20 Chilton Schools.
