2018 Polar Plunge - Palatine

Support Me

Welcome to my fundraising site! 2018 will mark my 13th year participating in the Special Olympics Polar Plunge, my 36th plunge into freezing water, and my first plunge as a Palmier! 

Over the years I have received an immense amount of support from friends, family, and coworkers. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to my fundraising efforts and supported a cause that means so much to me. 

This winter I will #PlungeWith Special Olympics Illinois at the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge. I have committed to “be bold and get cold” for the 22,000 Special Olympics athletes participating across Illinois.

I need your help! No, I’m not asking you to plunge alongside me, but I hope you will support my efforts by making a donation to Special Olympics Illinois. Any amount is appreciated – it all goes to one “cool” cause and gets me that much closer to my goal. Best of all, your donation helps provide athletes with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in Special Olympics programs and reveal their inner champion.

Donating through this site is simple, fast, and secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Illinois. Donations can also be made in person by cash or check. If you would like to learn more about this amazing event visit for all of the chilly details.

Thanks in advance for your support – and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
