“FREEZEN FOR A REASON”              

Good day colleagues and friends,

I hope all of you are managing as best as can be expected during these difficult times.

As most of you know, each year I participate in a charitable event or two to try and raise funds for a worthy cause, and each year I am blown away by the generosity and support that I receive from friends, family and complete strangers. This year I have decided to once again "take the plunge"  in support of Special Olympics Ontario. (SOO)  During the month of February, I will be participating in several "Virtual Polar Plunges" in an effort to raise money to support our Special Olympic atheletes. Don't worry, the only virtual part is that we can't gather as a group to do it. I will still be doing plunges, just in fun and unusual ways all on video. Send me some ideas if you like. lol. This is the 5th year now that I have taken part in the Polar Plunge and I always get people asking me why would you want to freeze yourself like that? The answer is quite simple, once you have had a chance to see the look of pure joy on an athletes face while they are competing in an event that they love to do, well, your hooked and you want to help raise funds any which way you can.

Here is the link that will take you directly to my fundraising page.

Thank you.
