THANK YOU for helping us repeat as fund-raising champions for this awesome cause!

Our participants, Jared Ping, Matt Robert, Joel Ping, Joe Kampmueller, and Scott Wiesbrook had a frigid bath March 9, 2019 at Lake of the Woods in Mahomet.  The 30+ mph winds, driving rain, and 37 degree temperatures made the lake itself feel cozy!  Our team raised over $3,100 this year.  All donations directly benefit the more than 25,000 athletes of Special Olympics Illinois!

In 2016, our team was given a spotlight section on the Special Olympics web site for our past participation in the plunge.  Click here for the full article on their web site.

For more information on this event, or to donate (donations accepted and appreciated even after the event), please visit our team’s First Giving website online. Please check out our Facebook page for some pictures and video of our plunge.

For the past 4 years, the Philo KC team was the number 1 fundraising team at the Mahomet event also, raising over $3,000 each year for Special Olympics.

THANK YOU for helping us repeat as fund-raising champions for this awesome cause!
