My Story

Growing up, I have fond memories of spending time with the Sullivan girls.  Our parents went to Quincy College together, and we spent a weekend each summer there for their reunion.  It was a weekend of sleeping in the dorms, laughing nonstop, and making memories that would last a lifetime!  You always knew our crew because we would walk around saying "fine and you" over and over, it never got old.

This year I will be doing the Polar Plunge with Team Eileen In.  Eileen is Colleen (Sullivan) Schaefers daughter.  Eileen will be 4 years old this month!  This will be the second year that Team Eileen will be taking the plunge, and I could not be happier to join this crew!

Join us for the 2020 Chicago Polar Plunge presented by Jackson 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 presented by Jackson today. See you Sunday, March 1, 2020!
