Tis’ Plunge season and I am ramping up my fundraising efforts for @spolympicsmd. You can help me reach my goal by donating to my Plunge page. Each donation goes right to the 15,588 athletes and Unified® teammates that compete in sports year-round, free of charge. #PlungeMD #BearTheCold


If you can’t BEAR the cold water at the Sandy Point State Park Beach, then consider Plunging at home and becoming a Virtual Plunger, like me! #DYK Becoming a virtual plunger means you gain access to a ton of awesome virtual opportunities while staying connected to your friends through SOMD’s website?
