Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my page. Those of you who know me, know that I have been doing crazy things all my life, but this is one of the craziest (so crazy, that my husband won't do it (and he does plenty of crazy things!))!
But the crazy is for a great cause. All the money I raise by jumping in the freezing cold lake will go towards Special Olympics. And anyone who knows me, also knows that Special Olympics is very near and dear to my heart. It has been a part of my life for almost 10 years now and I couldn't imagine not being a part of this wonderful organization.
Special Olympics Illinois offers sports training and programs to those with intellectual disabilities. I have been so lucky to be a part of the lives of many of these athletes! I have seen athletes work hard and succeed and be proud of what they have accomplished. Watching athletes get thier awards, the pride they show while standing up there is priceless.
I know times are tough, but even the smallest amount will add up! So please help my team (odd how the team gets bigger each year!) raise money so that these athletes can continue to have these priceless moments.
Jumping into icy cold waters is the least I can do! Thanks in advance for your support!
