This one's for you Hill!
I’m taking the PLUNGE for Camp Sunshine!
Thing 1 & Thing 2. That's what we were when we jumped into freezing cold water together for such an amazing cause...but most just called us whackos haha. Hillary inspired me to get involved with supporting Camp Sunshine when she talked me into jumping into a freezing pool of water with her more than 7 years ago. The craziest thing was, at first, I didn't even question what it was for -- Hill asked me to jump into a cold pool with her, and if she was doing it then I would do it too to support her. After that first plunge together, we got excited about the fundraisers we could do and how much money we could raise and we went on to plunge a few more times together, each year doing better than the year prior. We bonded over Camp Sunshine and plunging together. I admired her infectious giving spirit and I wanted to do more with her. As life changed for both of us over the years, we weren't able to plunge together like we had, but our friendship continued to grow and we often laughed about the memories we had made plunging and doing various fundraisers. Fast forward to this year, on March 16, 2017, we lost Hill. When I got the news, it was almost immediately that I knew what I had to do. I had to keep this going. I had to make her proud. I had to help her family keep her legacy alive. I had to carry on what she started, as hard as it would be to do without her. With permission from her family, Hillary's Chucks was born. A whole team, inspired by Hillary, working together to raise money in memory of her and the amazing work she did for Camp Sunshine. On March 10th, 2018, we'll do our first plunge as a team! Our team goal is currently to raise $5,000. If we reach this goal, we'll be able to sponsor TWO families to attend camp next summer!
Please consider helping me reach this goal by either making a donation (no donation is too small) OR signing up to PLUNGE with me! I’m sure it will be a WARM day in the middle of March up at Wachusett Mountain! All funds raised will help send children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to Camp Sunshine. This one is for you, Hill. Cheer us on and help warm up that pool for us!
