Fourteen associates from heavy-duty vehicle lift manufacturer Stertil-Koni recently participated in the the Maryland State Police 23rd Polar Bear Plunge corporate event at Sandy Point State Park.

A fundraiser for Special Olympics Maryland, Stertil-Koni says the popular event has grown to a four-day event with plunges for schools, police, families, and corporations. Each year more than 10,000 people journey to the park’s beachfront to join others in raising money for Maryland’s Special Olympic athletes.

The team was led for the third consecutive year by Stertil-Koni Director of Operations Kevin Hymers.

“I am proud to say we had the largest group of participants ever between employees, friends, and families. The plunge builds meaningful camaraderie. It’s definitely entertaining and has become a premier company experience. Despite frigid conditions, Stertil-Koni is pleased to support the more than 7,500 Maryland athletes in the Special Olympics,” he says.

Following Hymers into the frigid waters of the Chesapeake Bay were his wife, Robin Hymers, and daughter Kelly Marshall, Stertil-Koni President, Dr. Jean DellAmore, Matthias and Laura Lennemann, Dave Ziegler, Angela Boncz, Peter Bowers, Rich Weinreich, Robyn Collier, Michael Nichols, Nathan Wright, and Jill Zarend-Kubatko.

So far, the 2019 Maryland Polar Bear Plunge has raised $2 million. The public is encouraged to make contributions to Special Olympics Maryland on behalf of the Stertil-Koni team through February 26. To support the Stertil-Koni Plunge Team, please  CLICK HERE.
