On Saturday February 11 I am 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!
I have been fortunate to have a lifelong bond with Wakeman. I spent much of my childhood there, and many of my best friendships were formed there. The club has continued to evolve into an even better civic resource with the building of the Smilow-Burroughs Bridgeport Clubhouse, filling a great need in a very underserved urban community. The funds raised will further Wakeman's efforts there.
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".
