11th Annual Chicago Polar Plunge benefiting Special Olympics Chicago

Chicago, Illinois

Katie McCarthy's Fundraising Page

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

It's that time of year again.  The weather is frigid and my friends and I are going to jump into Lake Michigan.  Stupid?  You betcha.  For a great cause?  Heck yes.  

Read on:

On March 6th, our brave crew of participants will partake in the Chicago Polar Plunge. We will be making the intelligent decision of jumping into Lake Michigan at near freezing temperatures... most of us with the assistance of "liquid courage." At least potentially getting hypothermia has a cause, which is the Chicago Special Olympics.The Chicago Polar Plunge's donations provide 75% of the funding for the Chicago Special Olympics and it is imperative to its success.

Last year we raised $15,000 with overwhelming support from family, friends, co-workers and events. 65 jumpers bravely submerged themselves into Lake Michigan, breaking the record for the largest team to ever participate in the plunge. Team Liquid Courage topped every team in Chicago and this year we intend on doubling it!

$30,000 is our goal, every dollar helps and we greatly appreciate your support for this great cause! Please forward this site to your friends, family and co-workers to help Team Liquid Courage raise the most money in Chicago for the second straight year. Thank You!

Team Liquid Courage will be hosting charity events such as: poker tournaments, Blackhawks away game viewings, flippy cup tournaments and charity auctions. If you would like to join our team or get involved with the events please e-mail Mike Yonk: yonk49@gmail.com.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

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