On Super Bowl Sunday, before we all enjoy watching the Patriots, I will be plunging into the frigid Atlantic Ocean in Salem to raise money for local individuals and families that need affordable housing or a homeless shelter on the North Shore.

As a marathoner, we are crazy by nature and seeing that this is a CRAZY idea it seems fitting that I try it at least once in my life!

I am participating as a member of Bates Beaconators! Bates is the FANTASTIC school that Emily attends! Be prepared for video's and pictures of me during and after!

Thank you in advance for your donation to what I believe are great local charities!

All donations benefit: North Shore Community Development Coalition, River House, and the Salem Education Foundation.

The brave men & woman hit the water during last year's plunge.


On February 5th, a group of us will be taking the Plunge to help fight homelessness here on the North Shore.

Massachusetts is the third most expensive state in the nation for housing. In our region, a family earning the area median income cannot afford to buy a median-priced home. Homelessness is on the rise across the U.S. and it affects hundreds of families right here in our own backyards.

Everyone deserves a place to call home and taking the plunge is one small but imporant way of helping. If you would like to help just enter your Pledge information in the box on the right.

Thank you for your support and I hope to see you on the beach!
