I am plunging for every child battling or who has battled cancer. Please support me - better yet, join our team!!!
For years, I've seen coverage of what I consider complete nut jobs jumping into FREEZING cold water in the dead of winter. I have always thought, "Why would anyone ever do that?" Then, I heard about the Virginia Polar Dip ... and how it can help children battling cancer. Sold. I will do just about anything for these children. They endure treatments that are outdated due to lack of funding -- in fact, only 4% of the National Cancer Institute's research dollars are allocated to childhood cancer research. So, I figured the least I can do is jump into some ice cold water, scream as I am doing so, and maybe cry a little afterward, but most importantly, raise money and awareness.
Please help me by either making a donation (no donation is too small) OR signing up to PLUNGE with me on the Salon Khouri team! I’m sure it will be a WARM day in the middle of winter. All funds raised will help send children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to Camp Sunshine.
This will be our third year jumping into the ice cold waters of Lake Anne. We are dedicating our jump this year to Kate Rhoades, the daughter of dear friends who lost her battle with leukemia on January 12th, 2016 after a sudden and unexpected relapse. There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of Kate. She touched the lives of so many and we are honored to again be jumping so we can say her name and share her story with the world. We are also jumping in honor of Savvie, another sweet local girl who is battling leukemia. #ItsNotRare #MoreThan4 #UntilChildhoodCancerIsExtinct
