Come join the family. Book your appointment! Use your dental insurance benefits before the end of the year. Last year’s Polar Plunge was a success in every way possible and we are looking to exceed those contribution totals. We had a warm Elko winter’s day, cold water, lots of fun, costume contests and the support from our community that always inspires. We had teams from the mines, area schools, businesses, law enforcement, families and health-care providers taking the plunge. There were more than 110 “plungers” last year and your community raised an incredible $15,381 for Elko’s athletes. It is their courage to brave the cold water and your generosity that allows our athletes the proudly represent Elko as they give their all in athletic competition. Please join us at the City of Elko Swimming Pool on March 3, 2017 for a fun and inspiring event. If you are not a “cold water warrior”, you can register as a “chicken” and you can raise funds for Elko’s Special Olympic athletes without getting wet.
