I’m Freezin’ for a Reason!

I guess 2020 really did a number on me, because I'm actually volunteering to jump into the ocean in February!

In all seriousness, I'm really excited to be a part of the penguin plunge this year!  I've been donating for the past 5 years and have always thought so highly of the cause. I was asked by my coworker to serve food with her at the Hampton Beach event last year because they were short staffed. I was SO impressed and touched at the event that I knew I wanted to participate in a bigger way come 2021.  The plunge has been sucking me in/pulling at my heart strings for years and although I said I would never be the one who jumps in, here we are! There are not many things I dislike more than being cold, but I'm a sucker for a good cause and the Special Olympics is definitely one. Please donate a few dollars if you can!

Thank you!! - Amanda


I am so excited to be participating in the Penguin Plunge!  Donate now to help me raise funds for Special Olympics New Hampshire.

 Did you know that Special Olympics strives to create a better world by fostering the acceptance and inclusion of all people?  Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities. Athletes find joy, confidence, and fulfillment — on the playing field and in life. They inspire their communities to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.

 Please make a donation now to support my Plunge and the 3,000 athletes of Special Olympics New Hampshire.

 Thank you!
