Special Olympics Polar Plunge
Hello there one of my most special clients and his dad recently wrote me a letter that I would like to share with you.
I have added links and photos to his letter with his permission, but that is about it.
Check it out and support our community…………as it encompasses so many variety of people with various intellectual challenges.
I am Area Director of Pomona Valley Special Olympics which covers the cities of Diamond Bar, San Dimas, Walnut, Pomona, Claremont, Glendora and La Verne.
We provide free year round sports activities for our athletes with intellectual disabilities.
Michael is a Pomona Valley athlete and has been training at Fitness Concepts since your first 6 week class in November last year.
The transformation is incredible.
He has gone from 187 to 158 lbs and we thank you, Randy and all those trainers and clients who have been very supportive of Michael for this great improvement.
Special Olympics is holding a Polar Plunge at Bonelli Regional Park on February 27th to raise funds for our 2010 program.
Funds can be raised in several ways.
Donate direct to a plunger already registered. (Michael Evans)
Register as a plunger and collect donations
Form a team and collect donations from team supporters and friends.
This is a fun event. Check it out!
There you can see photos from past “Plunges” and information about the event and Donate section on the left hand side.
Connect to “support a plunger” and type Michael Evans in the box.
Michael has received good support to date.
To see the improvements in athletes when they are coached, given positive support and encouragement is very rewarding
To see their faces when they compete and place is very rewarding to me and my coaches.
Just like watching the progress with the clients in your exercise programs as they achieve their goals.
It too must be very rewarding to you and your staff.
So any support you, your trainers and clients can provide to the Polar Plunge will enable us to continue our program and provide physical activities and programs for those athletes with intellectual and physical disabilities.
Thank you very much for your guidance and support of Michael in his exercise program.
We are very proud of what he has achieved.
