Mark McInerney's Fundraising Page

Please support this great cause by donating to my page. I am willing to stand outside in the freezing cold for hours wearing just shorts and an Irish Tutu and then jump into 33 degree Lake Michigan water to raise money for Special Olympics... I appreciate every dollar that good people, like yourself donate. Thank you for your support.

Why I Plunge

On Sunday, March 3, 2024 I will participate in the 2024 Chicago Polar Plunge, one of the city's most popular winter fundraising events!  I am excited to take on the challenge of the Chicago Polar Plunge and jump into Lake Michigan’s chilly waters to support thousands of Chicagoans who 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 3, 2024.

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

Please help me raise funds for this great cause by donating today!
