Andrew and I have been supporters of special olympics for a long time now but Andrew really stepped up on Saturday and became a super supporter! Andrew and his team did the Polar Plunge this year for the first time and raised just under $7,000!! As a whole this event raised almost half a million dollars! I suppose there are a lot of people out there that want to pay to see these guys jump into a frozen lake (and support a good cause). If you can not tell their theme is golfers, since they put on a BOMA golf tournament every year to benefit Special Olympics.
They were one of the top earning teams, so they got to make a speech and get handshakes from Lisa Murkowski (one of our Senators).
You can see there is a big hole cut into the frozen lake for the jumpers to plunge in. Andrew is showing off his cannonball skills :) (thanks to Scott Minor for the professional photos!!)
After. Brrr!! I tried to get a group shot but the guys raced inside to the hot tubs. Andrew was the only one I convince to slow to a jog :)
We played in the snow for a while after and watched a few more jumpers.
Maddie is giving me the look. It usually means that I am doing something she doesn't like at that exact moment. In this case- taking a picture :)
See ya later!!
