THE STORY:

That's right- I'm doing it again: For the 2nd year in a row I'll be jumping into the Potomac River to support Chesapeake Climate Action Network's Polar Bear Plunge in an effort to keep winter cold!

Last year was pretty epic, with the frozen river having to be broken up along the shore so the plungers could jump in! My goal is pretty ambitious this year, but climate change is an issue very important to me, so I'm aiming high. 

Supporting organizations dedicated to combatting climate change is more important now than ever! Action at the state and local level will be the key to making progress on environmental initiatives, with little hope of positive actions coming from the federal level. Together, we can make a difference by showing we will not stand by while critical issues - like climate change - are ignored. 

I'm planning to take a video of the plunge this year to give you a better idea of what the experience is like (and you can watch it from the warmth of your own home while drinking a hot beverage). With your help, I'm confident I can reach my fundraising goal!

Thanks for taking the time to read this page and learn about this really "cool" event and important issue!
