Presbyterian Mo-Ranch Assembly is proud to announce The Salvation Army of Kerrville as the beneficiary of the 2016 Mo-Ranch Polar Bear Challenge held on New Year’s Day!
Sliders who are brave enough will make a splash into the New Year riding down the famous 35-foot-high, 116-foot-long slide straight into the icy waters of the Guadalupe River.
“The Salvation Army of Kerrville is so honored and blessed to be chosen as the beneficiary of the 23rd annual Mo-Ranch Polar Bear Challenge,” said Caitlin Probandt, Director of Development and Public Relations. “This money will benefit all the programs that our Social Services department offers to those in the community.”
Funds raised during this event will go toward The Salvation Army of Kerrville shelter, food pantry, rent and utility assistance, Reconnect Program, and much more. The public can sign up now to slide for a cause, raise funds and show their support of The Salvation Army of Kerrville!
Awards will be given to individual and team competitors who are the largest fundraisers. Additional awards will include the crowning of the Polar Bear King and Queen and event awards for the longest slider, biggest splash, slider farthest from home, oldest polar bear, and best costume.
The Polar Bear Challenge was established as a way for Mo-Ranch to support non-profit organizations in the Kerr County community. Over $175,000 to date has been raised to date from this event. All funds raised from the Polar Bear Challenge will directly benefit the challenge recipient.
Previous Polar Bear Challenge beneficiaries include Partners in Ministry, Christian Women’s Job Corps, Star Ranch, Hill Country CARES, Hill Country College Fund, Christian Assistance Ministry, Kid’s Advocacy Place, Habitat for Humanity, K-Star, BCFS Health and Human Services, and Kerr County United Way.
