The LABBB Legends Passion Plunge Special Olympics Fund Raiser

LABBB Legends: Allen Buttimer, Marc Bluestein, and Tom Brincklow

Written by: Caroline Brown

LABBB staff, along with family, friends, and best buddies, dove into the frigid waters of Revere Beach to raise money for our Special Olympics event.  The Passion Plunge is an annual event in which teams can raise money for their program’s Special Olympics of Massachusetts (SOMA) event.  This was the second year we had a team, called the LABBB Legends, and we raised over $6,000.  Of that money, 70% goes directly to LABBB Special Olympics.

The LABBB Legends staff who joined the plunging team include: Marc Bluestein, Tom Brincklow, Caroline Brown, Allen Buttimer, Michael DiCenso, Kathleen Duncan, Danielle McMahon, Kimberly Roberts, and Kristin Spinosa.  Several other staff came to the shore to support us and partake in the festivities, and many more made financial contributions.
The LABBB Legends Team!

As you know, SOMA is a wonderful cause; having seen my brother participate in various events during my childhood, I know just how positive an impact it can have on an athlete.  Richard loved competing and knowing that his family and friends were there to support him, and I’m sure our students all feel the same way at our Special Olympics event competition in May.  I’m also sure that other staff would love to help us raise money for this fabulous event if they knew we had a team, so spreading awareness would be a great thing!

The Special Olympics will be held on Wednesday, May 11 at the town of Lexington’s track and field. Opening ceremonies starts at 9:00am. Come and enjoy the event!
