Looking for an adventure that is not only challenging, spontaneous, and fun -- but also one that helps other people? Boston Cares has an exciting day for you!
On Saturday, April 28, join hundreds of other Bostonians in the Dash for a Difference, a "race through Boston neighborhoods on a quest to help others, learn about our city, and raise funds for Boston Cares."
You'll get a chance to engage in a series of quick, short-term volunteer opportunities, while at the same time exploring Greater Boston and solving puzzles along the way. Think of it as a scavenger hunt that helps others at the same time.
Have you ever taken a very cold shower early in the morning in order to start your day on the fast track? Do for the new year what a cold shower does for your day by jumping into the frigid waters of Carson Beach on January 1st.
It's truly a Boston tradition; the L Street Brownies have been organizing the annual plunge for over 100 years. If you're a wimp and just want to watch, be there before 8am. If you've got the adventurous spirit to participate, be at the L Street bathhouse (in the Curley Community Center) at 6:30am for registration.
Anxious? Find out what it's like (with chill-inducing photos) from two BostonSOS contributors:
The Adventure Blog featured an article on “having an adventure by having no choice”, which is something I've tried to believe in for years. It's not always easy; a number of years ago, I would panic every time I traveled anywhere, even if the end destination was someplace cool. And when I say panic, I mean panic: tears, shakes, complete meltdown. Many people would argue that if you are that frightened to do something, just don't do it; it's supposed to be fun, right?
