Our Story

On Sunday, March 3, 2024 our team will participate in the 2024 Chicago Polar Plunge, one of the city's most popular winter fundraising events!!  We are 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. Through your donations, people with intellectual disabilities can discover new strengths, abilities, and accomplishments.

There are three easy ways to support our plunging efforts:

  1. Donate to our team fundraising page!
  2. Join our team and take the plunge with us at North Avenue Beach on March 3, 2024.
  3. Help us spread the word! Share my fundraising page with your friends and family. 

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