The Sweatin’ for St. Jude Photo Shoot [Photos]

We are just days away from our first-ever Sweatin' for St. Jude event and Jaclyn and I are gearing up to spend 12 hours on side-by-side treadmills at the Owensboro Family YMCA.  To give you an idea of what to expect, Jac and I went over to the Y to become acquainted with our treadmills and pose for some publicity shots.  And, naturally, it was a hot mess.

Knottsville Boy’s St. Jude Fundraiser Earns State Recognition

This kid is a fundraising machine.  In December, Gavin Howard of Knottsville embarked on his mission to raise as much money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as he could.  With the help of his parents, Gavin designed "Peace, Love, Cure" shirts and hoodies and he's been selling them like crazy.  In fact, at press time, Gavin has sold over 500 and the orders just keep rolling in.  There have been stories about him in the Messenger-Inquirer, on WFIE, WAVE-3 in Louisville and here at WBKR.com.  And Gavin's now getting attention from the Ky State House of Representatives, who, this week, sent Gavin a special certificate of recognition.  LOOK!

The Polar Bear PUSH [Photos]

I have already shared the video of the 2014 Polar Bear PUSH!  Yes, I have renamed the "Plunge" the "Push" because my friend David Bristow, from Southern Star, offered up $100 to Special Olympics Kentucky if he could PUSH me into the 12-degree water.  And while the video is hilarious, it doesn't quite capture the play-by-play like these photos from Mark Smith Photography.  Check these out.  Mark totally captured the sequence of events!

WBKR and Southern Star Present: The Polar Bear PUSH [Video]

12 degrees.  That's how cold the water was Saturday for the 2014 Polar Bear Plunge.  12 degrees, People!  But, 157 plungers were there to jump in it anyway and help raise money for Special Olympics Kentucky.  I was going to plunge too . . . but had a change of heart when my friend David Bristow, from Southern Star, offered up an additional $100 to charity if he could push me in.  Naturally, I said "Yes!"  And the cameras were rolling.

Sign Up Now for the Polar Bear Plunge [Video]

How's that for an action shot?  Just a fraction of a second after hovering above the Hines Center Lake, we were swimming in it.  And a fraction of a second after this pic was taken,  I  was swearing like Andrew Dice Clay.  And, you know what?  I'm ready to do it all over again.  The freezing AND the swearing.  LOL!  The 2014 Polar Bear Plunge is coming up Saturday, February 8th at The Hines Center in Philpot and we are looking for folks to join us in raising money for Special Olympics Kentucky.
