As many of you know,  I have been Special Olympics coaches for well over 10 years. I have had so much fun working with incredible athletes from the ages of 8 to 55ish! I have laughed, cheered, and hugged. Most importantly, I have been inspired by the great sportsmanship, tenacity, and friendship between the athletes. Sonoma County has great coaches, volunteers, and family members. The year round sports are FREE for the athletes. We count on donations. This March, we will be doing the Polar Plunge! Brrrrrr. Please support team Hybrrrrnators (Oh yes. There will be costumes!) You can support me by: 1) making a donation 2) joining our team and plunging with us or joining as a chicken-no water 3) Coming to the event and cheering us on! This is not a swimming event. It is a plunge.

I hope I can count on you to support our fundraising efforts for Special Olympics. With your help, the funds we raise will help change the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities. There is nothing better than seeing an athlete on the awards podium! 

Every dollar counts and whatever you can give will be very much appreciated.
