Record-Size Stertil-Koni Team Takes Icy Polar Plunge in Chesapeake Bay to Help Raise Funds for Special Olympics of Maryland

| February 12, 2020

A great opportunity to show Stertil-Koni’s enthusiastic support for the community and the Special Olympics of Maryland

With warm intentions and cold breezes –a stouthearted Stertil-Koni team of 28 strong jumped into the frigid waters of the Chesapeake Bay, all in support of the Special Olympics of Maryland.

For the fourth consecutive year, Stertil-Koni participated in Corporate Plunge Day at Sandy Point State Park. The occasion was the 24th annual volunteer event, sponsored by the Maryland State Police, which this year generated a total of $1.7 million for Maryland’s 8,033 Special Olympic athletes. That easily surpassed the organization’s $1 million goal, and Stertil-Koni’s own roster of participants nearly doubled last year’s turnout.

Putting it all together for hydraulic bus lift and truck leader Stertil-Koni was once again the company’s Operations Manager, Kevin Hymers, who takes the phrase “Freezin’ for a Reason” to a new level.

Noted Hymers, “The Polar Plunge has become one of our favorite events on the calendar and this year we had our largest group ever. From our original core group to new employees, friends and family, everyone enjoyed the camaraderie and the opportunity to show Stertil-Koni’s enthusiastic support for the community and the Special Olympics of Maryland.”
