From Polar Plunge Co-Chair Amy Luckiewicz

As you know, 2020 is a LEAP YEAR and the Polar Plunge Team has just the idea of how you can spend your extra day for GOOD! 

Polio Chair Sheryl Meehan and our Polar Plunge Team is thrilled to announce that our 2020 Polar Plunge to End Polio is on Saturday, February 29, 2020 (snow day March 14th) and we can't wait to celebrate our 10th Anniversary with a BIG goal. As you may have heard we're hoping to reach $1 MILLION in cash gifts by June 30th and we're so close! We're asking you to help us end polio by giving you a few options to participate through your home club:
 
1) Register today to participate in the 2020 Polar Plunge, a Rotary District 7930 tradition since 2009! Click to register as a Plunger.

2) Register today as a Virtual Plunger...no jumping into the water for you, just fundraising! Click to register to register as a Virtual Plunger.
 
3) Come to Long Beach in Good Harbor on February 29th to hold a towel, take pictures, scream and shout and cheer us on!
 
And importantly...
YES! Your fundraising will be matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation;
YES! Your cash donations and fundraising will earn Paul Harris Credit;
YES! You can invite your friends, family, and non-Rotarians (in high school or older) to plunge with you! and...
YES! You can make a difference in preventing polio world-wide. 
 
Please visit https://rotary7930.org/page/polar-plunge for our FAQ, accounting, waivers and more. 

My final request is that you welcome my friends on the Polar Plunge Team into your club to speak about polio and the Plunge. Already a few of us have visited clubs to provide a deeper dive into the status of polio, why we're still fighting, and our great plans for the Plunge. They'll be reaching out to you soon if they haven't already. 

Please don't hesitate to contact me personally at (781)588-0257 or at polarplunge7930@gmail.com with any questions or to share your success stories in fundraising.
 
THANK YOU so much for helping and I can't wait to share updates with you soon on the 7930 website, social media and newsletter!
 
Yours in Service,
Amy Luckiewicz
