The Board Backers will be jumping into frigid water for the 7th year in a row. We rotate the area of the state every year to help Special Olympics athletes state wide. The team includes Special Olympics Board and staff and their family members. This winter our team will #Plunge With Special Olympics Illinois at the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge. WE WILL BE JUMPING INTO DUMPSTERS! You heard right, they will be clean and lined with plastic and have steps in and out. This will be the first time a Special Olympics plunge will be done in a DUMPSTER! That is right! We have committed to “be bold and get cold” for the 22,000 Special Olympics athletes participating across Illinois.
While we’re getting cold just thinking about it, we’re excited to join the thousands of warm-hearted individuals that will participate in the Polar Plunge. While our Plunge promises to be a little frigid, we do not mind because we are supporting the amazing athletes of Special Olympics Illinois.
To jump into the frigid waters, our team has set a personal fundraising goal of $10,000 and we need your help to reach it! Any amount is appreciated – it all goes to one “cool” cause and gets us that much closer to our 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 our Polar Plunge efforts and show your support for Special Olympics Illinois.
