Ken, Danny and Alex Laner's Page

Yes, we are doing it again...The Polar Bear Plunge. This is my 9th year. My son Daniel's (17) 7th year and my daughter Alex (14) 5th year. On Sunday February March 4th, we will 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”!

We are asking relatives, friends, business assocites, classmates, teachers and anyone else to support our efforts. Over the years our family has raised over $15,000 for Special Olympics!!!

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. If you prefer you can also send us a check made out to Special Olympics Illinois. Send to Ken Laner 1047 Shambliss Ct., Buffalo Grove, IL 60089 by February 24th.

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

Best,

Ken, Daniel and Alex (A.J.)
