John Moran's Polar Plunge 2024

Why I Plunge

On Sunday, March 3, 2024 I will once again participate in the 2024 Chicago Polar Plunge!  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.

The Polar Plunge and Special Olympics is near and dear to me with fond memories of growing up at Welles Park, where inclusion and acceptance reigned.   With your support, people with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to discover new strengths, abilities and friendships!

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!

Thank you for your consideration in supporting and making a difference in so many lives!
