My Story

Join me by donating or cheering me on at the 2020 Chicago Polar Plunge presented by Jackson on Sunday, March 1st for the 20th Anniversary!

In 2019, I participated in my first Chicago Polar Plunge and it was an amazing experience. It was great to meet fellow plungers, co-workers, Special Olympic athletes, and many more that put on this great event. I will be #FREEZINFORAREASON to 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.

I always enjoy participating in organizations for a good cause because you meet new people, hear their stories, and learn something in return. I am also reminded there are friends and family that participate in the Special Olympics and what it means to them. In some ways, I feel that I was gifted with my dad's spirit. He was someone who always enjoyed and supported those in raising funds for a good cause. He has helped me through many organizations I believed in and I always learned from his generosity and his supportive nature to help others. I have decided this years polar plunge will be dedicated to my dad because it is going to be a "wicked good time!" to honor all the Special Olympic athletes for their upcoming and continuing year.
