If you have ever played a sport, you know the joy that playing and competing can bring you. Not everyone would have the chance to play at that level if it wasn't for the efforts of Special Olympics.
This summer I got to catch some of the qualifying games of the Unified Cup, that brings together athletes with and without intellectual disabilities and not only were they a great opportunity for these athletes to play, they were really freakin' good games!
Anyways, if you want to support Special Olympics and also want to watch me jump in cold water, consider donating and coming out on March 3rd.
Join us for the 2019 Chicago Polar Plunge on Sunday, March 3rd. Take the challenge and jump in Lake Michigan for Special Olympics Chicago! All are welcome to join us, whether you go knee deep, waist high, or take the full plunge.
Be #FREEZINFORAREASON and support the 7,500+ special olympians who compete year-round in the city of Chicago. All funds raised will benefit the Special Olympics Chicago athletes, covering program costs such as transportation, sports equipment, team uniforms and food. Through your participation, people with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to discover new strengths, abilities and success.
Plunge as an individual alongside other supporters, join a team or create your own fearless team. Recruit friends, family and co-workers to #MAKEASPLASH. Teams with 20 members or more will be awarded for their efforts with a free, round-trip bus. All are invited to the post-plunge "Melt Down Party" with music, food, cash bar and more!
Make the #PolarPromise and register for the Chicago Polar Plunge today. See you Sunday, March 3rd, 2019!
