Those interested in supporting Kmet at the Polar Plunge have the chance to win a round of golf with the top ten tight end in the league, autographed memorabilia, meet & greets, and more.

“Any way that I can give back to this phenomenal organization and connect with the community in the process, I’m all for it,” stated Kmet. “My personal fundraising goal is just over $160,000 for the Polar Plunge, so I’m offering up some cool opportunities to hang out with me, receive some swag, and even tee off on the golf course– all in the name of supporting Special Olympics Illinois athletes.”
