Tropical Bear's Fundraising Page

Our Story

If you know us you know how much we love beach bumming in tropical weather.  Well unfortunately we're putting our sunscreen away and braving the freezing waters of Lake Michigan on Sunday for a great cause.  We will be participating in the annual Polar Plunge benefiting Chicago Special Olympics.  If you would like to support our team "Tropical Bears" you can donate below or on our individual or team page!!


We will be #FREEZINFORAREASON and supporting 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.
