Why I Plunge

After three years of hearing about what a great cause this is and how much fun this particular event is, I have finally decided to take the plunge with Team Eileen in.  Eileen's Mom, Colleen and I swam together at Saint Mary's College just a few short years ago.  Colleen and I plunged into a few cold pools back then but nothing quite like this!!  Eielen and her sweet family are all in so I am too!! 

On Sunday, March 6, 2022, I will be participating in the 2022 Chicago Polar Plunge, celebrating more than 20 years of plunging!  I have decided that it’s cold enough, and I’m bold enough to take the plunge into Lake Michigan to support Eileen, the 7,500 of Special Olympics Chicago, and anybody else who leans into the challenges in their own lives.  I am hopeful that this event gives meaning and purpose to some of those challenges. 

Through your donations, people with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to discover new strengths, abilities, and accomplishments.  Your kindness will make others feel good and likely make you feel good too!!  I look forward to plunging and I am commited to leaning in to whatever 2022 has in store.  

There are three easy ways to support my plunging efforts:

  1. Make a donation to my fundraising page!

  2. Join my team and take the plunge with me at North Ave Beach on March 6, 2022

  3. Help me spread the word! Share my fundraising page with your friends and family.
