2013 Polar Plunge – Update!

Polar Plunge at Lake of the Woods in Mahomet

Please support our 2013 Polar Plunge for Special Olympics participants. Our participants, Matt Robert, Scott Wiesbrook, David Happ, Mike Bosch, Joe Kampmueller, and Wyatt Reinhart survived a frigid February 23 at Lake of the Woods in Mahomet.

Participants that raise at least $75 in donations from friends, family and co-workers have the privilege of plunging into the icy waters. All donations directly benefit the more than 25,000 athletes of Special Olympics Illinois!

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.




The Philo KC team was the number 1 fundraising
team at the Mahomet event, raising online casino over $3,300
for Special Olympics.  Team member Mike Bosch
was the number 1 overall fundraiser, with $1350
donated – apparently a lot of people wanted to see
him jump into a frozen lake!

Great job to the entire crew!







WCIA TV3 had a news crew there and we are shown in the video they have posted: http://illinoishomepage.net/fulltext?nxd_id=466032.  Our team is shown on our way into the water from about 8-12 seconds into the video (wait until after the commercial).

Below are some pictures of us at the 2013 plunge!
