Our Story

For the 10th year in a row, I am very proud to lead our team supported by ServiceNow doing the Chicago Polar Plunge raising funds for Special Olympics Chicago.   What a wonderful DECADE of memories & giving back to the community!  Our “SharksNOWCare” team made up of ServiceNow colleagues, friends, family and partners are again taking part in the Polar Plunge.

The 2024 Chicago Polar Plunge is heading back to the beach and Lake Michigan!  On Sunday March 3rd we will be jumping into the freezing waters at North Avenue Beach on Chicago’s beautiful and chilly lakefront.

This iconic winter tradition is historically the largest and most well-known plunge event, gathering nearly 4,000 participants, plus friends, families and celebrities to support a great cause.

More than 7,500 individuals enjoy sports training and competition in 22+ sports along with other important activities year-round, and your support will have a direct impact on enhancing the experience of these superstar athletes.  All funds raised will benefit the Special Olympics Chicago and Special Children's Charities athletes, covering vital program costs such as transportation, sports equipment, team uniforms, and meals.

In the world we live in today this cause embraces diversity and inclusion to bring all people together in so many inspiring ways!!!!!   Through your donations, people with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to discover new strengths, abilities and accomplishments. 

Thank you in advance for your generous support!
