This is my 11th year doing the Polar Plunge at the Lake of the Woods in Mahomet.  Some years are cold and other years the weather is REALLY COLD!  Either way, it is always a worthwhile experience that I enjoy doing with my teammates.

My team is the Philo Knights of Columbus Council 13103.  We are always happy to do this and willing to dive in "head first" for this event.  Please feel free to donate to me or any of my fellow members on this team.  We are committed to “be bold and get cold” for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois by taking an icy dip into the frigid winter waters! 

Donating through this site is simple, fast, and secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Illinois.  If you would like to 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!
