Dear Friends and Family, An…
Dear Friends and Family,
Another plunge has come and gone. It’s hard to believe that this was my fifth time running into the freezing Atlantic waters. This year was another polar plunge that took place the week of a Nor’easter, just my luck! There were two things that got me through running through the brutal waters this year.
1. The amount of money I raised. This was an all time high for me. When I first began fundraising this year, I thought it would be impossible to reach my $5,000 goal. I was shocked when I checked my page three weeks before the plunge day and saw that I made it. Donations continued to flow in up until the night before the plunge. My final count was $6,340. I was one of the top teams when donations were announced, (and my team was made up of just myself). I was one of the top individual fundraisers for AJ’s Polar Plunge. The event overall raised a record-breaking $100,000.
The second thing that got me through this year’s plunge was something I have never had before, and something I’m sure you all noticed in the video. It is my tattoo, a very special part of me that symbolizes Victoria. Having her with me through this year’s plunge was extra special.
Thank you again for your generous contribution to my fundraiser. I am so thankful that I raised so much money, all of it going to such a wonderful cause. Camp Sunshine has been an inspirational and comforting place for my parents and I to attend the past 15 years.

Well today was the day! Than…
Well today was the day! Thank you so much for your contribution to this amazing fundraiser. I raised a total of $6,333...this is the most money I have ever raised for Camp Sunshine! It is an incredible feeling to be able to send three families to Camp Sunshine. It is an amazing retreat to be able to attend. The waters today were freezing! The second I hit them, my legs started to shake! With Victoria watching over me through this entire experience, it is always well worth the hour of shaking after the plunge.
Again, thank you so much for your continuous support through all of my fundraising efforts!
