2018 Polar Plunge - Yorkville

Support Me

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

I am very excited to be a participant in this year's polar plunge.  This will be the third year I have been a plunger, and it is for a very worthy cause.  I am currently getting my Masters to teach special education, and I have been a para for three years.  Special Olympics is a cause dear to my heart because I have worked with several of the athletes.  They work hard every day and deserve our support.  

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!
