First Plunge? If not, how many? Very first plunge :-D
Why take the Plunge? It's a great way to have fun AND support an Awesome Organization at the same time! (And dress up as Madea if I reach my goal, lol)
What does Special Olympics mean to you? I think the slogan says it all. 'Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.' Having family with special needs, it's even more important that I am able to do my part in raising money for SOCT. It's just great that there is an Organization like this that builds not just confidence but fitness for children and adults. They supply smiles and 'Yes I Can' attitudes. So yeah, what's a little hypothermia compared to the end result?
