The Lyndsey Streeter Memorial Polar Plunge was organized in 2018 by family and friends to celebrate Lyndsey’s life, honor her accomplishments as an Special Olympic athlete, and raise money to ensure the games she loved to compete in continue on for years to come.
At the age of 8 years old Lyndsey competed in her first Special Olympics event. From that moment forward she was hooked. She loved to compete in Bocce, Bowling, Horseshoes, but most of all she loved to race in her wheelchair. She was a fierce competitor, constantly pushing herself to be better at each competition. Lyndsey poured her heart and soul into the competition as well as her team. When she was not competing, she could be heard cheering her teammates on. She loved the thrill of a win and she loved to see her teammates succeed.
Over the years she accumulated quite the collection of gold medals, blue ribbons, and trophies. The smile on her face when a new gold medal was placed around her neck was truly priceless. To her it was like winning a Super Bowl. One of her proudest moments was in 2013 when she was named the Oklahoma Special Olympic Athlete of the Year. As they handed her that fiery torch to light the Flame of Hope during Opening Ceremonies of the Summer Games her whole body was filled with excitement. She was glowing as bright, if not brighter than the torch.
Lyndsey’s life was filled with joy, love, and inspiration. Although Lyndsey’s life was short, she made a lasting impact on her community, family, friends, fellow athletes, coaches, volunteers, and spectators. This polar plunge was organized to allow her legacy to continue to be an inspiration to her hometown community and to support her fellow athletes and the competition she so dearly loved.
