Why I Plunge

On Sunday, March 5, 2023 I will be participating in the 2023 Chicago Polar Plunge, celebrating more than 20 years of plunging!  I am excited to take on the challenge of the Chicago Polar Plunge and jump in to Lake Michigan’s chilly waters to support thousands of athletes that participate in Special Olympics Chicago/Special Children’s Charities programs. With your support, people with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to discover new strengths, abilities, and accomplishments.

There are three easy ways to support my plunging efforts:

  1. Donate to my fundraising page!
  2. Join my team and take the plunge with me at North Avenue Beach on March 5, 2023
  3. Help me spread the word! Share my fundraising page with your friends and family. 

Join me and make the #PolarPromise as I raise funds for the Chicago Polar Plunge today.
