Team Boota Boota

Freezin' For A Reason!

Our Story

There are few things we as cousins love more than spending time with each other.  This time we are excited to be gathering for a purpose: to raise money for our favorite organization, the Special Olympics! Team Boota Boota was formed in honor of our late Uncle Jimmy.  "Boota" was Uncle Jim's word for one's backside and he often used it when he was trying to stir up trouble, something he both loved to do and did very well. :) Uncle Jim also loved laughing, scrambled eggs, swimming, making others laugh, cheese, his family, and participating in games & sports, especally with the local Special Olympics!

Please join us in honoring our Uncle Jimmy by donating to our Polar Plunge efforts!  The more the merrier so if you are intersted in plunging with us we'd love to have you!

*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.
