Meet January’s 3 Degree Guarantee recipient: Special Olympics

Each month, 10 News selects a charity to donate to based on the accuracy of our forecasts

3 Degree Guarantee (WSLS)

With the start of a new month comes a new 3 Degree Guarantee recipient.

For the month of January, 10 News donated to the Special Olympics as part of our 3 Degree Guarantee initiative.

Each year, people around the world come together for the Special Olympics, a global movement that strives to promote inclusivity, inspire camaraderie and create an environment where all athletes feel welcomed, irrespective of ability or disability.

As a reminder, here’s how the 3 Degree Guarantee works:

  • If our forecasted temperature for a given day is within 3 degrees of the actual temperature, we’ll donate $10 to a specific charity
  • If our forecasted temperature is exactly on the dot, we’ll donate $100 to a specific charity

In addition to the 3 Degree Guarantee, 10 News will also be participating in the annual Polar Plunge, which raises thousands of dollars each year to support Special Olympics programs and athletes.
