To the editor:
Thank you for
your past participation in the Lincoln Polar Plunge that benefits
Special Olympics Illinois. I’m writing to inform you that Lincoln
will not be hosting a Polar Plunge for 2018. Instead, we will be
focusing efforts on a Re-Structure that will be happening throughout
the Special Olympics Illinois organization. We would like to take
this time to thank all the sponsors, volunteers, media and plungers
for their past support. The Lincoln Polar Plunge has provided many
athletes with the resources and the opportunity to train and compete
in the sports they are so passionate about.
As we look to the 2018 Polar Plunge Season, we hope you will join us
at one of the surrounding area Polar Plunge sites; Springfield,
Decatur or Bloomington – which is located less than 30 miles from
the Lincoln Polar Plunge site. (See attached map with locations.)
All funds raised from each Polar Plunge directly support the 22,500
Special Olympics Illinois athletes competing statewide.
[to top of second column in this letter]
I am talking with the coaches of the Lincoln
Special Olympic athletes to coordinate a local fundraiser and will
be sending out information soon regarding this event.
If you are interested in continuing to supporting the athletes of
Logan County, please contact our Region I Home office in Decatur
1950 N. Water St.
Decatur, IL 62526
Thank you again for your continued support! We
hope to see you this Plunge Season or at one of the local Logan
County Special Olympic fundraisers.
