Some of you may remember that my brother does the Super Plunge to benefit Special Olympics each January. What a lot of people don’t realize is that it requires fundraising for months beforehand! Mike works so hard to make that happen, and a couple weeks ago, I got to witness a special event to that end.
Kickin’ it with Cops was a great day where folks from Tamashii Black Belt Academy got together to crank out 1000 kicks to raise money for the plunge. People were sponsored for the event, and together everyone raised over $5000 to help the cause! The weather was great, and it was such a fun day to be outside. The Lee’s Summit Police were there to show their support (several on Mike’s super plunge team are police officers), and the fire station even brought out a truck, too! People of all ages showed up to be a part of the fun day.
