Why I Plunge

Today is Eileen's 6th birthday, so let's get fundraising! So many have heard you talk about my wonderful friend and neighbor Colleen. You have heard me share about her big heart, fantastic sense of humor, and authentic spirit! She is also the reason I have been able to join the fundraising efforts of the Chicago Special Olympics. Have I also mentioned the reason for all of this goodness is her AMAZING daughter Colleen!

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 the 7,500 of Special Olympics Chicago! Through your donations, 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. 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. 

Thank you so much for considering supporting me!
