Polar Plunge 2008
Monday, January 28, 2008
Can't believe it but I'm getting ready to do the Polar Plunge in Virginia Beach again this year. I missed it last year but this will be my third trip into the cold waters. This is a fundraiser for Special Olympics so it's a fantastic cause. My husband has done a bunch of fundraisers for Special Olympics over the years, everything from 5Ks to cook-outs. This year we are struggling to raise money, we've used first giving, I think last year we managed to raise $1100, but this year we're only up to $555 so far and the jump is this weekend. Our firstgiving page is http://www.firstgiving.com/car
quest We're still looking forward to the weekend away from the kids and the excitement of the event. There are tons of people that participate, it's really quite amazing and there is a fantastic energy.
