Why I Plunge

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. 

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