The Madi Rogers 24-Hour Cold Water Challenge

Last week, people all over Grundy County Tennessee dove into ice-cold water to help raise money to get a service dog for Madi Rogers, a toddler who suffers from type 1 diabetes-related seizures. Madi is just shy of two years old and a bit too young to keep track of her levels; service dogs are great at detecting when a person’s blood-sugar is low, but the Rogers family wasn’t able to afford the $18,000 pup on their own. Thankfully, Grundy’s generous community stepped in to pledge and plunge and get Madi the help she needs.

Watch the video to see some of the people who accepted the Cold Water Challenge taking the leap for little Madi.
