A Message From Alumnus A.J. Rathbun

Just wanted to let you know I'm taking part in the 2010 Polar Bear Plunge on Saturday, February 27, 2010. As many of you know, funds raised through the Polar Bear Plunge help to advance the goal of Special Olympics New Jersey, to provide free year-round training and competition in 24 Olympic-type sports to more than 18,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Having worked at the Special Olympics Summer Games in the past I've gotten to see firsthand the joy on the faces of the athletes who participate in the various events. Seeing those smiling faces makes it easy to make the dive into the frigid waters of the Atlantic, but that's only part of it, and why I need your help.

You can make an online donation of any amount by visiting my personal donation page and helping me reach my fund-raising goal; http://bit.ly/dx5pUp.

Many companies will also do a matching donation for funds contributed to Special Olympics so your donation can have an even greater impact.

We're also looking for folks who may want to take the plunge themselves (with a bar crawl afterward). If you're interested in participating, go to the link below and click on "Plunger Registration". When prompted, indicate you want to join a team and choose team "Sofa Kings". Either way I appreciate your support.
