It's that time of year again when I and other brave souls are getting ready to Plunge into the San Francisco Bay to help fundraise for Special Olympics Northern California (SONC). Some of my ACSO brothers and sisters and I have been coaching a Northern California Special Olympics swim team, the San Ramon Dolphins for the past 7 years. We have had the fortunate opportunity to watch these athletes not only grow physically but be part of their skills, social and intellectual growth. Seven years ago we met children that were just becoming familiar with water and conquering their fears and now, as young adults, swimming 2, 4, and 8 lap events in both regional and state events. We are truly blessed to be part of their lives!!
Call me crazy, but on February 23, 2019 I am going to "Feel the Thrill of the Chill" by taking a quick dip in the chilly waters of the San Francisco Bay to raise money for Special Olympics. I'm hoping I can count on you to support my fundraising efforts. The funds I raise will help change the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them the confidence they need to be successful in life.
Every dollar counts and whatever you can give will be very much appreciated.
If you'd like to join me for this unique event, visit www.iPolarPlunge.com to register. We'll have a blast and feel good knowing that we are making an impact on the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.
