Cynthia Friesen's Fundraising Page

 

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 am one of those folks. I’m collecting pledges from family, friends, co-workers and anyone else who wants to support the more than 22,000 athletes of Special Olympics Illinois! Your donations will help provide athletes with intellectual disabilities the chance to participate in year-round sports training and competition.

To reward your generosity, I’m going to join over 3,600 people statewide who will voluntarily jump into freezing cold water in the middle of winter as we take part in the Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunges for Special Olympics Illinois.

A little bit about myself, I'm a senior this year at Eastern Illinois University, and I am majoring in Special Education and Elementary Education.

This is going to be my fourth time taking the Plunge and I'm reaaaallly looking forward to it!!!! What I enjoy more then anything is helping others, and by doing the Polar Plunge.... I am doing my part to help raise money for the Special Olympics!!! Any contribution can bring happiness to individuals who truly deserve it!!!! Please help sponsor me and my team, and remember you are bringing happiness to millions!!


Thank you soooo much!!!! Words can't express how much your donation means!!!!!! Thank you!!!!
