Spencer's 11th Polar Plunge

Freezin for a Reason

My Story

On Sunday, March 3rd, 2024, I will be participating in my 11th Chicago Polar Plunge to raise money for Special Olympics Chicago. I'm keeping on pace to exceed $100k raised by 2025 and have set a goal of $5,000 to benefit the 7,500+ special athletes in the Chicagoland area this year.

My first ask is to consider donating to this cause I've been supporting for the past decade.  Any amount is appreciated. All is tax deductible.  By donating YOU do not need to go in the water with me.

My second ask is to spread the word with your personal and professional network by sharing my fundraising page and spreading the word.

A few awesome incentives for you all:

  • Anyone who donates will get a video of the experience from my vantage point via a GoPro that I will have with me as I run into the water.
  • If I reach my fundraising goal, I will bring two small polar bears with me to the event.

Thank you for your consideration and warm thoughts.
