2012 Polar Plunge Rockford

Rockford, Illinois

Grant Panzella's Page

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 people. I’m collecting donations from family, friends, students and anyone else who wants to support the nearly 21,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities participating in Special Olympics Illinois! Your donations will help provide athletes with intellectual disabilities the chance to participate in year-round sports training and competition. With my uncle Barry in Special Olympics, and me coaching and volunteering, I see first-hand the difference that Special Olympics makes in athletes' lives. The athletes are always very grateful to feel accepted for who they are through Special Olympics, and taking the plunge supports the program as a whole. I plan to continue to support Special Olympics by plunging for years to come!

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.

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.
