I have been trying to build up the courage to join the Balmoral Polar Plunge Team for a couple years now, and apparently I've decided this is the year. Anyone who knows me at all, this has to be the most uncharacteristic thing I will every do in my life; I almost can't believe that I am actually Taking the Plunge!!!
The mission statement of Special Olympics is simple, to “provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families and other Special Olympics athletes and the community” (https://www.soill.org/about-the-plunge/).
If my participation alone is not enough to show the appreciation I have for this wonderful organization, I don’t know how else to prove it to you.The work they do has enriched the lives of their athletes year after year. I am asking; please help me reach my goal of $500 to help fund some of the great work that is being done within the community.
Thank you everyone for your support and consideration!
