This is my FIRST Polar Plunge and I can't wait to experience not only plunging in the February waters, but to participate in fundraising for the Special Olympics.
My goal is to raise at least $500 over the next few weeks. All of these funds will assist the athletes of Special Olympics Georgia. If you are like me, you may not know how these funds assist the athletes. I learned the mission of the Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their familes, and other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
What an honor it is to know that just a few dollars and a little time can bring joy and happiness to a Special Olympics athlete.
Please consider making a donation for a very worthy cause. Whether a penny, dollar, or more your donation can affect the lives of many.
