Hi everyone!

As many of you may know, our Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) Chapter is a big supporter of Special Olympics Healthy Hearing (SOHH).  That being so, we decided that participating in the Polar Plunge is one way that our chapter will be giving back to this great organization.  Below is the "standard" explanation for what the Polar Plunge is, which I will leave for you to read if you have any additional questions.  In short, I, along with my classmates, will be jumping into the freezing cold Lake Michigan in the middle of February.  If that's not dedication, I don't know what is!!  I appreciate you taking the time to look at our fundraising page.  Whether or not you decide to donate, please spread the word about this great cause!


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!
