Special Olympics Is Truly Special
Today is New Jersey 101.5's annual involvement in one of the major fundraisers for New Jersey Special Olympics--The Polar Bear Plunge at Seaside Heights. I have had the pleasure of being involved with Special Olympic Events for many years and I cannot think of a more worthwhile organization. It's all about being positive and believing that there is nothing that you cannot accomplish in spite of whatever challenges you may have. The athletes are truly amazing. To meet them and to see what they accomplish is inspiring.
The Special Olympics home website is sonj.org and the website for today's Polar Bear Plunge is njpolarplunge.org Find out for yourself--spend a few moments on these sites. I think you will quickly find that this wonderful organization is worthy of your support.
Many charities now do their own version of a "plunge." Have you ever participated in one? How cold was the air and the ocean?
