2011 Polar Plunge Rockford

Rockford, Illinois

Sam Schmitz's Fundraising Page

I'm back after missing last year's event due to scheduling a vacation at the same time as the Plunge...really, it was an honest mistake!  The Goodwill Northern Illinois team made sure that would not happen again, so now I am getting ready for my second dip into the cool waters of Olson Lake at Rock Cut State Park on March 6th.

Goodwill Northern Illinois has finished #1the last two years in most money raised and we would like to make it three in a row with your help.  There are a couple of ways to help.  One, join the team as a plunger.  Already have something going on on March 6th... on vacation?  If that's the case simply make a financial contribution by clicking on the "Sponsor me now" link below.  

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 4,000 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.

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