Welcome to My Plunger Portal!
This has been a tough year for everyone. And, to not beat around the bush, exceptionally harder for those who are already often isolated - our Special Needs citizens. So we are looking to EARN your donation with the “POLAR PLUNGE”!
As most of you know, Kami is a Special Olympic athlete and has competed in a variety of sports for 21 years.
But what you may not know, is that she is in the Athlete Leadership Program (ALPs) and has committed herself to the vested interest in supporting her fellow athletes and growing the service.
So, Kami is participating in the “Polar Plunge” for Leon County in September. This is specifically for funding Leon County and our ONLY one for the year due to the shutdown of all in-person activities/practices/competitions for 2020.
To compensate, Special Olympics has gone virtual. We Zoom a lot! And great programs have been created to keep athletes involved in virtual physical fitness.*
On top of these programs for all Florida athletes, our ALPs athletes will also be leading this SINGULAR FUNDRAISER!
Kami will be plunging into the Gulf of Mexico in September. It will be videoed. Ha ha!!
She is part of a virtual team and they are appropriately named “Goosebumps.” (Well, for us southerners it’s appropriate as we ARE in NORTH Florida. Brrrrr!)
They want to bring in boocoo bucks for Leon County... to help cover the following costs
- growing our number of athletes,
- purchase needed equipment
- rent for training facilities (tennis courts, pools, golf course, track & soccer fields, bowling alley, roller rink, life guards...)
- travel to compete with other Counties throughout Florida
- potentially expand the programs to encompass younger (under 8) wannabes.
They have high hopes and are ASKING FOR ANY MONETARY DONATION; be it a buck or more, they will be very grateful for your kind support!
Please donate.THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT & reading this exceptionally long plea.
*The 3 upcoming programs - awesome opportunities for our athletes & athletes to be:
“Couch to 5k” - a nine week 3x per week training program increasing distances & running intervals for those who want to participate in running & building the endurance to do so.
“Home Fitness” - a nine week 3x per week workouts focusing on fitness & repetition for cardio, strength & overall fitness
“Virtual Miles” - a nine week program tallying miles ran, walked, biked, swam, danced or rolled.
“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
Special Olympic oath
