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!). 

As many of you probably know, my family friends and I, as well as many of my dad's business associates, have participated in Polar Plunge each year now in honor of my little brother Spencer. Spencer has Down Syndrome and is mildly autistic and has inspired me to see the world a little differently, to be more patient, and to love people for who they are. My family and I invite you all to donate to this wonderful cause, or to simply spread the word! We will be plunging on February 4 in VA Beach--please feel free to join the team if you'd like, to come out and watch, or to support from afar! Thank you!

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.
