My Message

On February 24th, I will be joining the Calgary Police Service team as we will be “Freezin for a Reason” by participating in the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Alberta.

I want everyone to participate in this worthwhile cause and Plunge with me!  What does that mean? Well, I will be jumping through an icy hole into the frigid waters of Arbour Lake and I would like you to pledge your financial support (i.e., make a donation) to mark the event.

Please click on the below link – a charitable donation receipt will be issued by Special Olympics Alberta for donations over $25:

So why would I do this to myself?

Decades ago, when I was in graduate school in Virginia, I wanted to find a positive distraction in my weekly schedule, something away from school and work, just for fun. I became a volunteer with a Special Olympics bowling league. Every Friday night, a crowd of some 50 Special Olympians (and their partners) would fill the house at a Bowl America facility. Laughter, competition, the joy of achievement, friendship, and pure satisfaction were evident every time we gathered. Sometimes a turkey (the symbol for three strikes in a row) would appear on the automatic scoring machine screens and there would be much celebration. Volunteering with Special Olympics was a massively rewarding experience for me.

On February 24, every plunge will make a difference to more than 3,300 Special Olympics Alberta athletes. Special Olympics Alberta is dedicated to enriching the lives of Albertans with intellectual disabilities through the transformative power of joy and sport. Programs cater to all ages and a wide range of abilities. Thanks to a team of over 1,000 unsung volunteer heroes, Special Olympics Alberta sports programs take place in our province each and every day. For more information, visit www.specialolympics.ab.ca.

Thank-you for taking the time to consider supporting this awesome cause. Whether you choose to donate or to spread the word of the event, your help is tremendously appreciated!!
