I'm plunging into Lake Champlain on Saturday Feb 5th (yes, I'm serious, it's not a typo) as part of the Burlington Penguin Plunge to raise money for the Vermont Special Olympics.
I've joined a team of skilled doctors (with poor judgement like me) who are also going to jump into the near-freezing water. Being on a team of critical care doctors seemed like a good plan in case I go into cardiac arrest, but as I think more about it- none of them are polar bears either.... Don't worry- ambulances, EMTs, and Coast Guard rescue divers will be standing by. But to make it fun for you- think of your donation as a wager on my cardiopulmonary system!
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to my fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
Thanks for supporting the Vermont Special Olympics.
