North YMCA Ice Bath Challenge - February 3
So Carson came to me with a great idea. Originally, it was to raise funds for Special Olympics with their Polar Plunge. if enough funds were raised i would take the plunge (if you know me I hate cold water)..
However, we are hosting Liberty Swim team that day and cannot do this. So, we brainstormed an alternative:
- Each participant is signing up to have a bucket of ice water dumped on them after the meet. They will get pledges from friends and family.
- Highest earner gets to dump ice water on me; second place swimmer will get to give Coach Rickie an ice bath also.
I chose Bridgeway Academy (Duncan's school - a non-profit school for kids with autism and other development issues) as the first charity, and we'll be splitting the proceeds/pledges 50/50 with a donation to North YMCA (as a thank you for all they do for us). We'll create some donation forms for the swimmers.
We will also invite Liberty to join in if they would like to. Maybe we can get their coach to make the same promise to their swimmers...
Please let us know if you would like to take part!
