THE STORY:

Jennifer Toth wrote -

This will be my seventh polar dip for Camp Sunshine, and I'm more excited than ever because this year it just happens to be scheduled for... MY BIRTHDAY!

So why would I be crazy enough to act like a polar bear when I should be eating birthday cake? Because Camp Sunshine means the world to me! My family first attended camp in the summer of 1996 after I finished cancer treatment. Camp Sunshine is a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, so the whole family gets to enjoy a fun week at camp while meeting other families that understand what they're going through because they're in the same situation... and families don't have to pay to attend. We had such an amazing time that we've been going back as volunteers every year since then and have started the Virginia Polar Dip to send more families from the Mid-Atlantic region to camp. This year, our goal is to raise $100,000, enough to send 50 families to Camp Sunshine. It's an ambitious goal, and that's why we need your help! Sign up to jump with us or consider making a donation to this awesome cause!

I'm now a nursing student at the University of Pennsylvania and am hoping to bring a whole crew (I'm looking at you, "Crazy College Kids") home with me for the weekend to join me in this birthday-weekend-cold-water-party.  Contrary to what the seemingly painful pictures might indicate, it's super fun.  I promise.  Come on, folks, if I can jump into a frozen lake on my birthday, you can jump into a frozen lake on my birthday. Or at least donate :)
