Polar Plunge-Prior Lake

“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”— Eunice Kennedy Shriver

My friend Jonnie (his page if you want to pledge)got a group of 75 people from Lifetime Fitness to jump into Prior Lake in February!  The Polar Plunge is a fundraising event for Special Olympics. There are 16 different plunges in Minnesota and last year raised $2.8 million to support the programs. Everyone dresses up in crazy costumes and jumps into the lake  where they have cut a hole into the ice for access.  Only in Minnesota will you see someone in a bikini, running through the snow to jump into the freezing water for charity.  It is a great charity to support and there are so many families that it helps. I applaud any program that gives everyone a chance to compete with their peers and  get involved in the community. through exercise and activity. There are so many stories of hope, connection, friendship and inspiration.
