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 played soccer starting in elementary school. Since then I have played basketball and run cross-country and track and field among many other sports. I know from experience how meaningful sports can be. I have a family on my teams. I have learned about who I want to be because of the challanges I face in athletics. It is the training grounds where charater is built. This is why I am supporting the amazing athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. I want everyone to have the chance to be an athlete, a champion. 

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 – your donation helps provide athletes with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in Special Olympics programs.

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!
