Hi all,

This year I'll be "taking the plunge" - and by that I mean jumping into the freezing waters of Lake Michigan. It's not just for a sense of crazy adventure; the plunge is also for a good cause! The Chicago Polar Bear Club supports two families in need each year, so 100% of every dollar donated goes towards supporting both families.

I've created a fundraising page with a target goal for this year, which you can find here: [paste link to page here] 

I'd really appreciate your support. Hope to see you at the beach on January 20th when I take the plunge!
