My Story

On March 1st, I will be jumping in a lake for my baby... an ice cold lake!  I will be plunging with the most amazing teammates for the most amazing reason - Marty and Reese!  Last fall, Marty and Reese were born, both with Down Syndrome.  They met shorthly after and hit it off right away ;)

This plunge in Lake Michigan benefits Special Olympics Chicago, which provides opportunities for people with disabilitoies.  Please plunge us or donate to our team!


Join us for the 2020 Chicago Polar Plunge on Sunday, March 1st for the 20th Anniversary! Take the challenge and jump in Lake Michigan for Special Olympics Chicago! All are welcome to join us, whether you go knee deep, waist high, or take the full plunge. 

Be #FREEZINFORAREASON and support the 7,500+ special olympians who compete year-round in the city of Chicago. All funds raised will benefit the Special Olympics Chicago athletes, covering program costs such as transportation, sports equipment, team uniforms and food. Through your participation, people with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to discover new strengths, abilities and success. 

Plunge as an individual alongside other supporters, join a team or create your own fearless team. Recruit friends, family and co-workers to #MAKEASPLASH. Teams with 20 members or more will be awarded for their efforts with a free, round-trip bus. Teams that raise $20,000 or moe are eligible to receive a 20x20 tent. All are invited to the post-plunge "Melt Down Party" with music, food, cash bar and more! 

Make the #PolarPromise and register for the Chicago Polar Plunge today. See you Sunday, March 1, 2020!
