Talking Help me raise money for the Special Olympics!

Hi All,

As many of you know, I do alot of work with the Special Olympics.

One of the events I participate in is the Polar Bear Plunge. Basically, I raise money for Special Olympics for the right to jump into a 30 degree pool of water!

This year, the Polar Bear Plunge is at Newport on the Levee in Newport, Kentucky on Saturday, February 3!

To donate, go to this link:
http://kentucky-ohioplunge.kintera.org/2007/lael

Enter the amount you would like to contribute and click 'Continue'

A number of you all donated last year and I raised nearly $1600 last year! I placed 2nd place in Overall Individual Fund Raisers! This year, I want to get 1st!!

Attached is a picture of me from last years event.

Thank you again for all the support for this wonderful organization!

My wife actually made that for me!

We went to Hancock Fabrics one night and all the ladies in the store helped pick out the best material for the cape!

I'll be wearing it again this year!

p.s. If you want to show up and watch me take the plunge, I'd be more than happy to buy the beer for everyone! It's a great time!

Funny thing is I have seen this guy, and that is not a wig!

Wow I didn't know BMW made motorcycles, Yeah I think Honda does too.
