It's that time of year again!! Once again I am going to participate in the Special Olympics Illinois SUPER POLAR PLUNGE!! Super you say?? Why?? Because it is not just ONE plunge into the cold waters of Lake Michigan, but 24!!! That's right - 24 plunges in 24 hours!!

As usual I get way too excited about this! Not only because it is an awesome cause, but becuase I get to spend 24 hours with some of the most awesome and selfless people that I have had the privilege of getting to know! They have no idea that they are some of the every day heroes that exist in this world. My brother is a Special Olympian and I know first hand how much he enjoys participating and people like the ones that I plunge with are the ones who help make it possible!!
