2018 SUPER Polar Plunge

Support Me

Hello SUPER PLUNGE family and friends,

This year marks my 13TH ANNIVERSARY SUPER PLUNGING INTO ICY LAKE MICHIGAN! After this year, I will have plunged 312 times for the athletes of Special Olympics IL. My profile picture is of my unified bocce team. I pledge to #PlungeWITH my athlete friends to promote acceptance, inclusion and unification for all the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. That is right! I have committed to “be bold and get cold” on Feb. 16-17, 2018.

I’m excited to participate with this elite group of plungers who are brave enough to plunge ONCE AN HOUR FOR 24 HOURS into the Icy Waters of Lake Michigan. The positive impact this event makes on the lives of Special Olympics athletes across Illinois will last a lifetime!

I need your help! No, I’m not asking you to plunge alongside me:) 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.If you would like to learn more about this “official event of winter,” 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!

.We hope to make this event the best ever.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
