This will be my 5th year doing this crazy but wonderful event. Why would anyone want to jump in water that is somewhere in the 30 degrees range? It s for the athletes and also because I'm crazy. Me just doing this little bit doesn't seem like a lot, but last year the Winston-Salem Police Department raised almost $60,000.00 for Special Olympics. (the best in the state of North Carolina) Every little bit that I can raise will go towards us being able to continue being Number 1 in the state.
I also do this because the look on an athlete's face when they cross the finish line or when they receive that medal is one that you can never forget. Every year we have Special Olympic Athletes at this event and every year no matter how I'm feeling I see there smiling face and it reminds me what I'm doing this for.
Any amount of donation will help and will be greatly appreciated.
