Hey All!, below (in the smaller text) is the well-written information that explains the fundraiser that is provided by the event coordinators.
I would like to personally take a moment to say that this is my third time doing the Polar Plunge in Carlyle and I have had a great time participating in the event. It is quite fun and a little crazy. Best of all, it is for a great cause. My nephew Christian participated in the Special Olympics last year, so it is that much more meaningful for me to support the organization. Last year, I was amazed to have such generous friends and family - we raised $805 together! Thank you so much. I would love to be able to match or even beat that amount this year, so if you are able, please donate what you can and let's all make a difference together!
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 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.
To reward your generosity, I’m going to join more than 5,700 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. I guess you could say that I’m “Freezin’ for a Reason”!
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to the LETR Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Illinois.
Many thanks for your support – and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
