Today was the 8th Annual Hooley Plunge which benefits the Special Olympics and other local programs that work with the developmentally disabled in our county.
Connor and many of his soccer teammates joined hundreds of other crazy folks at Lake Habeeb, at beautiful Rocky Gap State Park, and happily jumped into the freezing cold waters.
Connor’s group were in the second wave…
Connor said he was going all of the way out to high-five the diver before turning around. Lots of folks barely got in before they hightailed it right back out. The kid is crazy, but we love him…and his heart. Good work Connor (and thank you to everyone that helped Connor reach his donation goal!) and everyone that volunteered, plunged and gathered donations. When we were leaving, the amount raised was over $99,000 and still climbing!
I love my town.
and some video that Pap Pap took…the fun stuff begins at the 1:18 mark. I think I hear screams of pain in there. ha.
