Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page for Special Olympics Virginia’s 2012 Polar Plunge® Winter Festival. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. And you don’t even have to get your feet wet (or cold!).

It is that time of year again, time to jump into the Atlantic Ocean in support of Virginia Special Olympics. As in years past, our team will have a theme. This years theme is LARPing (Live Action Role Playing). We will all be dressed as different characters. Pictures will be sent to all donors. Current water temperature here in Va Bch: 46 degrees. Rest assured I will swim out as far as is allowed. No wetting just my toes, complete submersion. So help out a great cause. Feel free to come down and witness the craziness.

Special Olympics Virginia uses sports as a catalyst to change society’s perceptions and treatment of people with intellectual disabilities. By sponsoring me in the Polar Plunge® you are helping Special Olympics Virginia continue its mission to change the lives of more than 10,000 athletes across our Commonwealth. I invite you to join me and experience heartwarming extremes as I seize the freeze and plunge into the icy Atlantic Ocean this February.

This is an incredible cause, and I thank you for your gracious support. Please don’t forget to forward this to your friends and family. I appreciate any support you can provide as together, we help Special Olympics Virginia.
