On March 3, 2012 I will be jumping into a hole in the ice in Lake Calhoun to raise money for the Special Olympics. One item on my bucket list will be crossed off – I don’t think I want to get good at this, but I do want to try it.
The big reason we are doing this is to raise money for the Special Olympics, this has always been one of my favorite charities. I love sports and competing in anything – this organization gives people with disabilities the opportunity to experience the thrill of competition and the fun of learning a skill and working on a craft.
This is where you come in. I need your help raising money. If you wish to donate to the cause, you can do so here.
Here are the facts about the event:
