Volunteer Journal #85 - The Polar Bear Jump!

Polar Bear for Polar Plunge! Here are the pictures from the San Francisco Polar Plunge I did benefitting the Special Olympics.

It was a great event and I had a blast! They ended up raising over $200,000 dollars for the Special Olympics in Northern California! I even got to meet some of the athletes.

A few things to look for in the slide show:

When I'm hugging the corporate bear in the white bikini check out the large bruise on my knee.  I dislocated my right knee lifting weights at the gym the week before.  It was so painful that I dropped the 10 lb. weight in my hand on the other knee causing the bruise and keeping me out of the gym for the last week.

When I dove under the water my friends lost sight of me and couldn't get many pictures.  Reason why - when I dove under my bikini top and bottoms slipped off a bit so I stayed under water until I pulled everything back on.

Thanks to all of my wonderful donors who helped me raise money for the Special Olympics and my first polar plunge.  As I've said before on Twitter and Facebook - you guys keep TheGoodMuse running with your well wishes and you've help me cross off a major event on my bucket list.

Here's hoping you all have a lovely week.

Stay tuned for the next 15!
