Hi family and friends!!

Thank you for visiting my Polar Plunge fundraising page! They say anyone with a little guts and a warm heart can take the Plunge and I think i am one of those folks! I’m collecting donations from family, friends, co-workers and anyone else who wants to support the nearly 21,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities and more than 6,000 Young Athletes ages 2-7 of Special Olympics Illinois! Your donations will help provide athletes with intellectual disabilities the chance to participate in year-round sports training and competition.

As most of you know I'm working towards a Special Education/Elemetary Education degree, I was involved in Best Buddies all 4 years of highschool and have personally known a number of fantastic special education students, many of whom were involved in the Special Olympis so this cause is dear to my heart for many reasons. My Schneider RA team will be taking the plunge into Thompson Point Lake here at SIUC on February 25th! I guess that you can say that I'll be "freezin' for a reason!"

It would be an amazing if you all could help me reach my fundraising goal. It's going to take alot of convincing to get me to run into a lake in Feburary! =P Any kind of support and donations would be greatly appreciated! Also If you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you so so much! =)
