Thanks for visiting my 2012 Polar Plunge fundraising page.
As many of you know, I am proud to serve as a coach and volunteer Assistant Area Director for Livingston County Special Olympics. It is a tremendous organizing that gives people with intellectual disabilities something that we all desire....an opportunity.
We offer an opportunity to achieve, an opportunity to succeed, to compete, to strive for a goal, to win and to be a part of a team. While we use sports and competition as our main teaching tools the skills learned not only help our athletes within the sports world but our athletes then translate them to school, work and the greater community. Whether the goal is to be able to complete a 100 yard dash on the track or learn how to work in a team atmosphere that will help on the job, we provide it all.
I need your help to raise the funds that we need to provide 15 sports to over 400 athletes in our year round program. We survive entirely on donations and the Polar Plunge is one of our biggest fundraisers.
When we brought the plunge to our program seven years ago, the idea of me dressing up as a girl started as a joke, now I am told it is a tradition that I am not allowed to get away from. This year’s outfit is still in the works but I am always open to suggestions and of course, for the right donation, can be made to wear just about anything.
I can’t thank you enough for your help. If you would rather donate by cash or check please let me know and we can arrange that.
Become a fan of our facebook page and watch how your donation helps.
