I have committed to “be bold and get cold” for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois by taking an icy dip into the frigid winter waters! I know – you’re probably getting cold just thinking about it! While the cold I will experience is temporary, the positive impact this will have on the lives of Special Olympics athletes across Illinois will last a lifetime.

I need your help! No, I’m not asking you to plunge alongside me, but I hope you will support my efforts by making a donation to Special Olympics Illinois. Any amount is appreciated – it all goes to one “cool” cause and gets me that much closer to my goal. Best of all, your donation helps provide athletes with intellectual disabilities the chance to participate in year-round sports training and competition.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Illinois. If you would like to learn more about this “official event of winter,” visit for all of the chilly details.

Many thanks for your support – and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
