After a two-year hiatus, I have decided to re-up my Polar Plunge insanity and plunge again! On April 24, 2021, I am taking the Plunge in support of the incredible athletes of Special Olympics Northern California & Nevada.
For those of you who know me, you know that this will be my 11th Polar Plunge. Yeah, I said it. This is my 11th Polar Plunge!! Yes, I know I am a glutton for punishment, but it's for a really, really great cause!
On Saturday April 24th, you'll find me hanging out pool-side with chattering teeth & blue toes, preparing myself to plunge headfirst into an icy pool. In past years, my fellow plungers and I have stood in snow, slid on the ice, cut our feet on rocks that were invisible below the white-capped waves, and it's been known to be a balmy 21 degrees outside! With 2021's lack of winter weather, who knows what kind of surprises the weather holds in store for us on plunge day?!?!?!
Just so you know, I'm not asking you to join me. My promise to you is to keep you out of the lake by asking for your donations. My personal goal for 2021 is $2,000, but I know that with your help, we can raise more than that! So, wadda ya say? Will you donate?
Am I a little crazy to do this? Yes, completely! I assure you, it's all for a good cause! It's the Polar Plunge, a fundraiser for the Special Olympics of Northern California. We have a blast every year and we feel good knowing that we are raising funds for Special Olympics, an organization that changes the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.
Can I count on you to support my fundraising efforts? The funds I raise provide critical support for Special Olympics virtual “@Home” sport, fitness, leadership, and health programs that empower Special Olympics athletes to become the best versions of themselves. Every dollar counts and whatever you can give will be very much appreciated. If you prefer to mail in your donation, please click here to print out the offline donation form.
As always, I thank you from the bottom of my frozen toes and greatly appreciate your donation!
