Storm Creek and KARE 11 teamed up to support Special Olympics Minnesota by launching an exclusive collection of winter beanie hats and apparel, to help us Embrace the Cold in 2017-2018. More than $15,000 was raised for Special Olympics MN!

Winters in Minnesota can get pretty cold and snowy, and 2018 was no exception! To fully embrace the season, we teamed up with KARE 11 to get people outside enjoying winter activities and events, all while supporting Special Olympics Minnesota. From the Super Bowl, to numerous events held by Special Olympics Minnesota, to Alpine Ski/Snowboarding at Afton Alps, and even the 2018 Winter Olympics in Peongchang, our hats and apparel made their way around the world, inspiring all to #EmbraceTheCold. 

Our hope was for these hats to become an important part of everyone’s winter gear for years to come, while spreading Special Olympics' Unified Movement to help create communities of acceptance and inclusion.
