Rapids staffers taking the Polar Plunge

By German Sferra

According to Weather.com, Saturday's noon tempurature in Denver is supposed to be about 27 degrees, with a 'feels like' of 19 degrees. That's what nine members of the Colorado Rapids front office staff will be facing as they take the Polar Plunge to help raise awareness and money for Special Olympics Colorado.

President Tim Hinchey and CMO Jeff Jacobson are among the staffers that will dress in old Rapids uniforms and the old cheerleading outfits and jump into the freezing waters of the Chatfield Reservoir. The other members of the staff (that have not yet chickened out) are Wayne Brant, Alex Teal, Rebecca Payne, Rachel Sweeney, Christa Dellebovi, and Kristen Sonsma.

Even though online registration is closed, people (or teams) can sign up on the spot beginning at 11 am. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS.
