There’s nothing like taking a dip in Lake Michigan…in the middle of winter! Each year over 2,000 people brave the icy waters at North Avenue Beach and raise money for Special Olympics Chicago. Participants raise a minimum of $150 to support the programs enjoyed by the nearly 5,000 Olympic athletes throughout the year. TCW Managing Editor Carrie Williams is raising money in honor of her dear friend Tom Ziarko. Tom (pictured here) braved the icy waters for several years in support of Special Olympics before he passed away from Stage IV Metastatic Melanoma last year. So let’s go Team Z! Click here to donate.
