Hunter Crain's Fundraising Page

I am  Joseph Hunter Crain, a 21 year old Olympian, and have been running into the surf  in February  since high school!  This is my 5th year Plunging for the Virginia Special Olympics.  I am active in Area 3, the Charlottesville, Albermarle, Fluvanna, Louisa and Green Counties of central Virginia.  Everything about Special Olympics is great!  There are lots of sports all year long to participate in and friends to make.  I especially like the bowling, basketball and golf.

 Running into the freezing Atlantic Ocean can be fun too when you go with a few thousand of your friends!  Last year I was in the costume contest and came in second place with our group of the " Three Plungaliers".  That is a take off of the Three Musketeers, the Virginia Cavaliers, and Polar Plungers - check out the plungers on our orange Cavalier wigs!!  We had a great time and raised money for a great cause. It is so exciting to see the crowd and hear music from the bands in the huge heated tent  after getting totally cold and wet in the Ocean. There are games, contests, a play area for the kids and even ice carving.  

It is a Beach Party in Winter!

 What else is there to do at the Beach in February???

Come join me for some nice cold fun

or just donate!!!
