My Story

Last year, I participated for my first time in the Polar Plunge and I can’t wait for March 1st, to "be bold and get cold" for Special Olympics Chicago by dipping into Lake Michigan alongside scores of other warm hearted people. 

The work this organization does warms my heart. Disabled children and adults, often isolated and abandoned, are celebrated, included in mainstream society, embraced. The first Special Olympics were help right in Chicago at Soldier Field in 1968.  This is now the largest sporting competition in the world for intellectually disabled children and adults. What started out small now serves 5 million athletes in 172 countries.

I know, you're probably getting cold thinking about it! But while the cold I feel this winter is temporary, the positive impact this will have for those with intellectual disabilities in Illinois will last a lifetime.

Last year I raised over $500 and this year I’d love to reach a new goal for Special Olympics Chicago of $1,000 and need your help to reach it! It would mean much for you to contribute anything you feel comfortable with to my page. Any amount would be appreciated.
