Kolan 857 Page

I'm pledging to take a polar plunge at Michigan Stadium in honor of my dear friend Kolan McConiughey.  Amongst Kolan's most significant accomplishments in bowling is arguably his 800 series with games of 299, 258 and 300 for an 857 series, to be exact.  This occurred on February 3, 2011 and to recognize this remarkable accomplishment, I've named my team 'Kolan 857'.  

In addition to his legendary and iconic status as a bowler, what truly makes Kolan special is his commitment to the Special Olympics where he competes as an athlete and serves as an inspiration to other athletes and spectators alike.  

For those of you who don't know Kolan, check out this youtube link to learn more:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J87E305gf0o

I met Kolan more than 7 years ago and I fell in love with him the moment I met him.  It makes me feel good to call him a friend and I beam with pride when I get a chance to hang out with him at Tiger games, trips to Cedar Point or even just an afternoon hanging out and listening to music.  He's touched so many lives, many of whom he's not even aware of.  

Join my team today, or make a pledge in his honor so he can see how many people truly are inspired and moved by his courage, resiliency and kindness.  I love him to pieces and I hope my efforts will serve as a small testament to the profound depth of character he possesses, along with his uncanny ability to just make people smile and feel good.  

Here's to you Kolan, a champion in all of our hearts!
