Oakridge Challenge - Training with Mike!

By MIKE BRAID

So in the past few days I have been called out to compete in the Cold Water Challenge.  I have watched numerous videos of staff, students, coaches, parents etc from Oakridge plunge in to Wolf Lake. I have not done it. Two reasons, I don't want to and what is the purpose of this whole challenge! So I started thinking.......scarey! Here is my challenge to the Oakridge community. I have a selfish goal of wanting to train as many kids at Oakridge as I can. Training is injury prevention and if done right it makes my job easier and our kids safer. I know a lot of people can not afford to pay for their kids to go to a class or a program. I want to raise money to allow middle school athletes/kids to train this summer for free! I need $900 for 12 sessions 2x per week for 6 weeks to get our middle school kids moving!!! So, if you want me to jump in Wolf Lake help me find the money to do this! As a matter of fact if we can raise the money I will do a polar plunge as well. Now, help me find sponsors that would be willing to offset the cost of training our kids and I will gladly jump into the lake. SO shake the pockets of those who want to help make a difference in the lives of the kids that go to Oakridge. Message me, call me, whatever it takes to make this happen. 

If we exceed our goal we will put that money towards training next summer's goal!
