Hello Everyone! Well, I am wasting no time with what time I am granted. This year, I will be dedicating more focus to the Special Olympics, beginning with the Polar Plunge this weekend. Members of the Melbourne Police Department, including myself, will be taking the icy cold plunge into an ice filled wave pool at Disney's Aquatica.
Special Olympics supports intellectually challenged children throughout their entire lives, and funds are raised through law enforcement activities and sponsorships. I ask that if you can, please donate a dollar, or two, or whatever you can spare, to our team, "The Melbourne Copsicles" so we can our part to support these amazing kids and adults.
From my own challenges this past year, I can tell you this; I would not have been able to do much at all had I not had the support, mental and physical of my family, my friends, and YOU. So this has quickly become near and dear to me and I feel that God is using me to help support this and other upcoming events for this wonderful group.
Remember when I said I wanted to run a half-marathon in 2010? Well, when April rolls around and we do our part of the Special Olympics torch run - guess who will be running with the group? Yep, yours truly - that is how committed I am to this project to help others in need. I hope that you find, in your heart, to help me help them. I will post pictures as the events unfold.

Thanks so much and God bless you!
