At the beginning of next month, a few hearty souls have decided that they’d like to do a little to help the Special Olympics. The Special Olympics, if you aren’t aware, is a sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The organization serves communities all over the world and has more than 50,000 events each year.
When I was asked if I would help the Special Olympics, that seemed like a pretty good idea. A worthwhile organization and a little fundraising… but there’s a little more to it than that…
In fact, besides the fundraising I have to jump into a lake in which portions of the ice covering have been removed! Yes, to support the Special Olympics, I am going to do something utterly ridiculous.
Now, here’s the rub. There’s a bit more to this polar plunge thing… as part of jumping I’ve committed to helping them raise a few dollars. That brings us to the sponsorship portion. Will you be so kind as to skip a coffee or latte, or two, and pledge a few dollars to the Special Olympics?
But why is it a #sqlplunge? That part is simple. Because a few of community members have decided to get together to raise money and jump together. The others in our group are:
As an added bonus, if you, the SQLFamily, help me reach my sponsorship goal. I will promise to wear the Magical Unicorn Mask for the polar plunge. I mean really, you want to see me in this…
