Yes, I am really going to do this again!
I remember it like it was yesterday, Standing there waiting for my team name to be called knowing that everyone else who said they would be on my team had bailed. Trodding out into the 37 degree water by myself while everyone watched because I was the ONLY 1 man team! Making it out to the turn-around, downing my celebratory drink and diving into the freezing cold water in victory!
It's that time again. When the snow is falling, the icicles are hanging from the rain gutters, people driving like idiots because of a little snow, and yes... my return to the polar bear plunge to raise money for all the great kids who compete in the Special Olympics!
Last years goal was set a little low as I wasnt sure whether or not anyone would be willing to donate so this year, we are going to try for 3 times what the goal was last year. Please give only what you can. $5 or $10 is just fine if thats all you can afford. It's the cost of one drink at the bar. Lets reach this goal!
Thanks to everyone for supporting the Special Olympics and for rooting me on. Anyone else who wants to join my team and plunge, contact me and we'll get you in!
