BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Broken Arrow High School held its third annual “Tigers Freezin’ For A Reason” on Wednesday night at Broken Arrow Golf and Athletic Club with the proceeds benefitting the BA Special Olympics. []

The BA athletes are preparing for the state games of the Special Olympics in Stillwater and officials at the school volunteered to jump into a freezing pool to raise a few dollars for them.

BA High School student Sean Cunnane made the ceremonial first jump with athletic director Ken Ellett and football coach David Alexander.

After that, Superintendent Dr. Janet Dunlop, BAPD Chief Brandon Berryhill and BA assistant AD Melenda Knight also participated in an effort to raise $7,000 for the Special Olympians from Broken Arrow.

They have not reached that goal yet.
