This winter I will once again #PlungeWith Special Olympics Illinois! I will be rejoining the brave men and women at the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run Super Plunge! I have committed to “be bold and get cold” for the 22,000 Special Olympics athletes participating across Illinois. This one is 1 plunge every hour for 24 hours!


This year, I was asked to by my friend, Virginia to help her plunge for her daughter Shelby, who is an awesome athlete! Virginia has Super Plunged for the past several years, but due to some medical issues she won't be able to take the frigid dip. Don't worry, she is going to come up and volunteer! When she called she thought she was going to spend some time talking me into it… But, I am excited to get back to Super Plunging for all of my friends at 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!
