Coming up on Saturday, February 3rd, I am going to be diving head first into the freezing Atlantic Ocean as part of the Lupus Research Alliance Plunge to Freeze Out Lupus in Asbury Park.

My team name is "94.3 The Point Nicole's Plunge in Honor of Erlyn" because I am actually doing the event in honor of a very close family friend, Erlyn, whose life has been severely affected by this disease.

Lupus is a devastating autoimmune disease that affects millions worldwide. The exact cause of lupus is unknown and there is no known cure.

It would mean the world to me if you donated towards the cause with 100% of the proceeds going to support critical lupus research programs because the Lupus Research Alliance Board of Directors funds all fundraising and administrative costs.

Your other option is to be right next to me when it is time to plunge. You can join with a team of your very own, register as a solo, or you are more than welcome to join my team!

Hope to see you there whether showing support from land or in the water!
