PLUNGE + Video

On Friday, my nine co-workers and I went to Sandy Point and plunged into the cold waters of the Chesapeake Bay in support of Special Olympics of Maryland. Crazy? Maybe. Worth it? Totally!

I am so overwhelmed with love and gratitude for the people in my life who donated to the cause. I made a deal with them that I’d plunge as far into the water as they were willing to donate!

$605 later, I plunged past my waist!

I couldn’t believe it! Last year I was happy to have raised over $300 but over $600 is beyond what I thought I’d be able to donate and it felt great to give back to such an amazing organization. In total, participants raised $2,063,256 for Special Olympics of Maryland!

If you’ve ever had the opportunity to participate and said no because of fear, just do it. Its 10 seconds of discomfort for an incredible high knowing that you made a difference. 

And now the plunge!
