New Year’s Day was greeted with a warm fire, delicious coffee cake, and an abundance of really cold water. The New Year’s Day swim has become an annual event for many Mo Duk Pai students and was started over four decades ago by Professor King. When you begin the year with a challenge this great, there isn’t anything you can’t overcome. What better way to bring in the New Year?
Joined by students of all ages from our sister schools we converged on Kelley Point Park. Beginning with some conversation surrounding courage, strength, and visualizing challenges gave us pause to reflect and project on mountains conquered and yet to face. Then the plunge strengthening resolve to confront all challenges 2014 offers. Here are some pictures of the swim. Congratulations to all who braved the frigid mighty waters, well done! It’s definitely something to be very proud of. Thanks for coming and SEE YA NEXT YEAR!!!!!
