Today was the annual polar plunge held by the Brandywine Red Clay Alliance (formerly Brandywine Valley Association). It was my fifth year participating and everything was a success. I raised $100 and want to thank everyone who has donated to the cause.
The polar plunge was a huge success! The Brandywine Red Clay Alliance raised over $2000 for the watershed and environmental education. I also had a lot of fun. My costume won honorable mention - everyone loved the jelly fish idea and was even interviewed by two reporters! One was for the Daily Local, and I'm not sure what the other news agency was. When I went into the water, which was 39 degrees, I made it to my abdomen and won a shirt.
I'm attaching a few photos and I will be sending along my photo album. One fraternity from Widener University was there and I took a video of their silly antics while singing "Sweet Caroline." It was such a great time today.
And here is one of another song:
I hope you have a great rest of the weekend. I will be finishing another article for 5 Best Things, then relaxing. Thanks again for those who sponsored me today for the plunge!
