On Tuesday, April 29th, our staff was nominated by Pastor Edgar Rodriguez of New Hope Church in Moville, IA to take “the plunge”. The challenge was for our team to jump into Prior Lake (38′ at best), participating in a polar plunge. While seemingly crazy…AND IT WAS, the purpose behind the plunge wasn’t crazy in the least.
Through our simple act of jumping into Prior Lake, looking like a bunch of goofs and screaming like some pre-teen girls on a roller coaster ride, we had pledged to raise awareness and money toward cancer research.
As a staff, we are able to both sit back and laugh at how crazy we were/are as well as really consider why we did what we did. It was an amazing experience and worth every bit of what we did if we are able to raise awareness toward the fight over cancer as well as raise financial support in helping research possible cures for this illness that is above any socio-economic barriers, color lines, age, race, country, creed or gender.
This polar plunge experience has inspired creativity in us as a team to come up with other ways in which we can contribute both individually as well as corporately toward doing something in the fight against cancer.
We ask that you join us in praying for and thinking about ways that you might get involved in changing a community affected by cancer one life at a time.
