It is going to be frigid! On Saturday, Feb 17, I will #PlungeWith Special Olympics Illinois at the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run SUPER Plunge. That is right! I have once again committed to “be bold and get cold” for the 22,000 Special Olympics athletes participating across Illinois.

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.  While my Plunge promises to be a little frigid, I do not mind because I am supporting the amazing athletes of Special Olympics Illinois.

I want to challenge all of my fellow Blackhawks fans to join my team and #PlungeWith me! Individuals who join my team will not only get the cool Polar Plunge incentives but my friends at the Chicago Blackhawks have sweetened the deal!   The more you raise the more you and the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois win! 

  • $250 level incentive:  Patrick Sharp autographed photo
  • $500 level incentive: Item above PLUS an autographed Coach Quenneville puck
  • $1,000 level incentive: All items above PLUS a Duncan Keith autographed hockey stick

If you can't join my team, please help me reach my fundraising goal!  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 want to #PlungeWith me visit and sign up under the SUPER Plunge event! Registration for my Plunge will take place at 9:20 a.m. that morning at the Clark Street Beach in Evanston. Together we will all plunge at 10 a.m. 

Thanks in advance for your support – and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
