Team Captain The Stables 2018 Polar Plunge - Rockford

Support Me

Here I go again!  This will be my 14th plunge!  Last year my children and some of my grandchildren plunged with me along with friends and a lot of other crazy people!  Why do we plunge!  Because Special Olympics Illinois makes a difference in the lives of the 22,000 Special Olympic athletes participating across Illinois and we have been lucky enough to be involved!  

While I’m getting cold just thinking about it, I’m excited to join the thousands of warm-hearted individuals that will participate in the Polar Plunge.  While my Plunge promises to be a little frigid, I do not mind because I am supporting the amazing athletes of Special Olympics Illinois.

To jump into the frigid waters, I have set a personal fundraising goal and I need your help to reach it!  Any amount is appreciated – it all goes to one “cool” cause and gets me that much closer to my icy dip.  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 my Polar Plunge efforts and show your support for Special Olympics Illinois.  If you would like to #PlungeWith me or 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!
