Saturday February 11 is a very special day! Not only is it my 10th birthday, but I am also going swimming in Long Island Sound! Yes you read that right, I will be taking part in "Freezin' for a Reason" to raise money for Wakeman Boys & Girls Club!
I won't be alone though. There will be a couple hundred other people of all ages heading into the chilly water with me at 1pm on the 11th at Fairfield's Jennings Beach. I have been told to expect the water temperature to be about 37 degrees - - I don't think my swim will last too long!
Wakeman is a terrific organization that I'm proud to support. They have three different Clubhouses, two in Fairfield and one that just opened up in Bridgeport. They also offer mentoring and tutoring programs at McKinley Elementary School in Fairfield. All together Wakeman will help more than 4,000 kids this year and that is why I am taking part in "Freezin' for a Reason". It doesn't matter where a kid lives or what program is their favorite - there is something for everyone at Wakeman!
My friends and I go to Wakeman twice a week and play FOOTBALL! We also play hoops and go to the game room. It's a great, safe place for us to get together and I hope you can support my effort with a donation. Donating through this website is simple, fast and completely secure. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to share my page with anyone who you think might want to donate too!
