Plunging for Special People

Your Kindness Matters

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade." - Charles Dickens

Well, Charles Dickens, that certainly sounds like March in Chicago. I'm hoping for the sun shining hot as I participate in the 2024 Chicago Polar Plunge on Sunday, March 3, 2024, benefiting Special Olympics Chicago. 

Won't you support me in this worthwhile cause?

All funds raised aid programs that provide year-round athletic training and competition for thousands of children and adults in Chicago with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I'm happy to raise money for an organization that values inclusion, celebrates acceptance, and provides dignity and joy to people with disabilities.

The world is a better place when everyone is accepted and valued for the gifts they bring. 

If you're unable to donate, kindly consider sharing my fundraising page.Your voice can be just as important as your money.

Thanks for your consideration and think SPRING!
