As many may know last Summer my family was devastated when we lost my younger brother Barry.  Barry was not only a fabulous Special Olympic athlete, he was also an avid supporter.   He annually participated in the polar plunge in Bloomington. He also supported others who took the plunge elsewhere.  To honor Barry,  I, along  with my boys, my brother and sisters, my nieces and nephew will participate in the plunge   I hope you will consider supporting us in this event  

is going to be frigid! 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.

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!
