2013 Polar Plunge
Sunday Mar 3, 2013 11:00am-2:00pm in Chicago
I made this event to give every one of my friends and family a chance to make a donation to a great cause. As most of you know, my brother Billy participates in the Chicago Special Olympics every year. Last year he ended up finishing in 1st place in the softball toss. WOO HOO!! So once again I will be trying to raise money for Chicago Special Olympics by jumping in cold Lake Michigan in the beginning of March. Last year I ended up raising close to $1500 and have a personal goal this year of only $1000. Every little bit helps so if you could find some time out of your day and some money out of your pockets, I would really appreciate it. Like I said, any little bit helps!! The donation process is really easy. All you have to do is copy and paste the link below and click “Donate” on my page. It doesn’t get much easier than that! Please feel free to share this event with other friends and family that are feeling generous!

By making this event, I am not asking you to participate or show up that morning, just asking for your money :). But if you wanted to participate, just register at sochicago.org

Here’s the link for my donation page
