It's that time of the year once again, I'm taking the polar plunge into Lake Michigan on Sunday, February 18th.

As some of you may know Special Olympics is very near and dear to my heart and has been a monumental and amazing part of my life and many of my friends lives.

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.

To jump into the frigid waters, I have set a personal fundraising goal of $300 and I need your help to reach it!  Any amount is appreciated – it all goes to one “cool” cause.  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!
