Heather Bailey and her team, the B & B Blizzard Bunch, raised nearly $16,000 for the 2017 Chicago Polar Plunge, held on March 5, 2017, which benefitted the Special Olympics Chicago. It was the group’s 11th year participating in the event.
She said the most rewarding part of the day was being greeted with a hug by Special Olympics athletes as she arrived at the lakefront. “It makes it all worth it,” Heather stated in a Chicago Sun Times article.
She was also featured in the Chicago Tribune’s video coverage of the event. Heather got in the Chicago spirit, and dressed as Harry Caray to take the plunge!
