MINNEAPOLIS — Miami law firm Rivero Mestre will be making a splash on March 1 when a team of warm-weather attorneys jump into the frozen waters of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis. It’s all for a good cause. Rivero Mestre has signed up to participate in the Polar Bear Plunge, presented by the Minnesota Law Enforcement Torch Run®, as part of the year-round fundraising events that benefit the Minnesota Special Olympics. Andres Rivero, Charlie Whorton, Ana Maria Barton, Andrew Bernhard, Bryan Paschal, Carlos Rodriguez, and Adriana Olivares will be taking the plunge. Of the seven participants four are warm-blooded Cuban-Americans and one is Jamaican American.

It all started last September when a good friend from Target Corporation told Rivero about the event. Never one to turn down a challenge, Rivero agreed to participate, and soon-after enlisted other daring colleagues to join him. In turn, the Miami firm is challenging its Minneapolis friends to go “Over the Edge” in September 2014 by rappelling 19 stories down the J.W. Marriott Marquis Miami to support the Miami Children’s Initiative. More information about both events can be found at the websites below.
