Here is a personal message from Bill Hohmeier:
"Hi family and friends, hope you can help out. I am part of a small group that will take a plunge into Lake St. Louis on February 7th (rain, snow, ice or sun - I am hoping for sun).
Be a fan of excitement, chills and goodwill: Support my Polar Bear Plunge!
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to donate to me, so please donate now! Many thanks for your support. About the Polar Bear Plunge:
This "unbearable" event is a unique opportunity for individuals, businesses and organizations to support local Special Olympics athletes by jumping, diving or crawling into the sparkling, frigid waters of Missouri. Since its inception 14 years ago, 8,527 Missourians have taken the plunge in lakes across the state, raising $1,853,751. If you're too chicken to make the splash yourself, please be a fan by making a pledge to me!
Thank you for being a fan.
