Camp Sunshine is a one-of-a kind retreat in Maine that allows children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to spend a fun-filled week together. To date the Virginia Polar Dip has raised over $305,000! This year, their goal is to raise $100,000 which will allow 50 families from the Mid-Atlantic (PA-VA-MD-DC-DE-NC-WV) area to attend to Camp Sunshine.
This is my third year taking part, my second if you count actually jumping in the water! (I chose instead to help raise money for a different team). It's a great cause, and it's a fun way to break up the middle-of-the-winter doldrums. Feel free to join a team if you want, or just donate and cheer others on if you're not the adventurous type.
Thanks for your support!
