Supporting the Maryland Special Olympics--15th Annual Polar Bear Plunge

Many of you are aware of the amazing opportunities offered to participants in the Special Olympics. From the website, the Special Olympics describes its mission as: 

Dignity, acceptance, and a chance to reach one’s potential – these are human rights worth promoting for everyone. For more than four decades, Special Olympics has been bringing one message to the world: people with intellectual disabilities can and will succeed if given the opportunity.

My brother, Tim, is helping to raise money for the Maryland Special Olympics by participating in a very special event, The Polar Bear Plunge, on January 29, 2011. This will be the 15th annual Polar Bear Plunge and they are hoping for a great turnout! There are many prizes, including the opportunity to meet Pauly D (if you don't know who he is, believe me, you won't care) and Raven's Quarterback, Joe Flacco. It is open to participants of all ages, but those under 18 must have parent permission.

If you would like to support this very worth effort, and make a donation toward my brother's efforts, you can go to his support page and make a donation. Donation Page for Tim Kirby. General donations can be made at the Donation Page for Special Olympics-Maryland.

Thanks in advance for your support and donation!
