I will be jumping into the lake TWICE this year. I am doing the Arctic Plunge in Maple Lake on Feb 1st and I am raising money for Special Olympics MN for doing the Polar Plunge on Marth 7th 2020.
THE POLAR PLUNGE IS A SERIES OF EVENTS
WHERE PEOPLE JUMP INTO A FROZEN LAKE
TO SUPPORT SPECIAL OLYMPICS MINNESOTA!
Special Olympics Minnesota is part of a global movement of people creating a new world of inclusion and community. Through athletic, health and leadership programs, SOMN aims to create a world that accepts and welcomes every single person regardless of ability or disability. All funds raised from Polar Plunge support over 8,100 athletes across the state who participate in Special Olympics programs.
The reason I have done the plunge in the past and why I plan to do it annually is because as you likely know if you have been reading my blogs, I have a daughter with special needs and even though its a chili endeavor, it warms my heart that there are events like this for individuals with disabilities. The Special Olympics is a cause worth being briefly cold for, and honestly, I’ve started to actually enjoy the rejuvenating experience, makes my skin feel great and gives me a surge of adrenaline.
You can support my Plunge several ways. The best and easiest is to visit PlungeMN.org and donate online. My personal page can be found at
You can check this page to see how close I am to my goal.
