2013 Polar Plunge


Thanks for visiting our site.

Please support us as we're "FREEZIN' FOR A REASON"

We will be jumping into the freezing cold waters of Lake Michigan in nothing but our swimsuits.

This is a cause very close to our heart as Chad Eiting (my brother) was a Special Olympic Athlete. Chad was a young Special Olympian whose favorite thing was playing sports and the Special Olympic Games. Chad passed away in 2008 and we hope to keep his memory alive by raising money for Special Olympics so others can experience the same joy he got from participating in Special Olympics.

We are also selling the official team T-shirt which can be purchased for 13 dollars at

If you would like to join us in plunging you can sign up at the link below, click register and join the crazy cold chicks chattering for Chad team.

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.

Thanks for your support!

Love, The Crazy Cold Chicks Chattering for Chad


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