I see it's almost time for the Polar Bear Plunge again (Flier [pdf]). The annual fundraiser for Special Olympics of Nebraska is February 23 at Holmes Lake.
Last year you folks helped me raise about $400, and I got to join a few dozen other crazy people as we ran into an ice-covered Holmes Lake. It was a blast.
This year I want to raise the bar a bit. First, I know we can raise more than $400 this year. Let's really kick things up a notch: let's shoot for $1,000. I'll post more information soon about how you can donate.
That's a 250% jump. Pretty substantial, I know, so I'm going to need your help. I would love it if we could put together a team of Lincolnite readers and/or Lincoln bloggers so that we can pool our collective resources. Plus, it's way more fun to do this sort of thing as a group. Who among you is bold enough to take a dip into Holmes Lake's icy waters? Honestly, it's not that bad. It's flippin' cold, yes, but you're not in the water for very long.
So come on, who's with me?
