According to WWE.com, Braun Strowman will take a polar plunge on Friday before he makes his return to RAW next Monday. The Monster Among Men is looking to raise money for the local Boys & Girls Club of Hartford, Wisconsin, where he calls home.
Here’s a quote Strowman gave to WWE about the event:
“So, basically, I don’t know why I got this wild hair, but a Polar Bear Plunge is where you go out on a frozen lake, you cut a hole in it, and you jump in. Something I guess most sane people wouldn’t do, but let’s be honest, I’m not the most sane person. I figured I’m going to be in Wisconsin and this is going to be my last weekend off before I come back full-steam in WWE; I’m coming up here to enjoy some time with my family and I figured why not help the local Boys & Girls Club while I’m up here. I’m very adamant about the youth and leading by example and helping pave a brighter path for them to pass it on. I feel like if I go out of my way to do something nice for them, one day they might do it for somebody else; it’s the trickle-down effect.
I decided to start a GoFundMe for the local Boys & Girls Club here in Washington County in Hartford, Wis., where most of my family’ from. There’s two towns up here, Hartford and Slinger. My dad’s side of the family is from Slinger, my mom’s side of the family is from Hartford, and my sister and I are the only two in my family born out of the state of Wisconsin. [But] Wisconsin’s still my second home, so I get a chance to give back to a community that’s been so great to my family over the years, with my aunt being the high school gymnastics coach at Hartford. And why not, you know? We’re moving in on $1400 in 12 hours on the GoFundMe, so it’s taken off great. It’s for an unbelievable cause; we’re going to get new equipment for the kids here to play with and learn and have tools and everything to be successful in life. Whatever you can do to help out and donate, anything helps. No amount is too small. The sky’s the limit on how much we can donate, so let’s see how much we can raise with these kids.
I had originally planned to do it by myself, but it looks like it might turn into a little bit of an event. I know the local news here in Milwaukee has reached out and they want to come up and cover it, and I’ve had a lot of positive feedback via social media from people in the area that are basically champing at the bit for me to tell them exactly what time I’m going to do it, because a lot of people want to come do it with me.”
Here’s an update from Strowman with specific information about the event:
For anyone that wants to watch my #PolarPlunge live or join in with me I will be meeting at Big Guys in Hartford 5869 Franklin Dr, Hartford, WI 53027 at 3:00pm and will be jumping in pike lake at 3:45. If you come to the event and donate I will take photos with you and sign pix
