What is the Polar Plunge?
The Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity to support Special Olympics athletes by taking a flying leap – a leap into the frigid waters of an Illinois lake.
Participants raise at least $75 in donations from friends, family and co-workers in exchange for jumping into the icy waters in the middle of winter.
Each plunger receives a Polar Plunge sweatshirt and entrance into a Post-Plunge Party, plus the chance to win additional prizes for raising more money.
All proceeds collected by plungers benefit Special Olympics Illinois athletes.
In 2013, more than $1.7 million was raised by more than 6,913 plungers. In 15 years, $10.2 million has been raised by more than 40,000 plungers!
Attire: Anything but a wet suit. Shoes are recommended and costumes are encouraged. Don’t forget a towel with which to dry off! No head-first diving is allowed!
In 2014, Polar Plunges will take place from Feb. 21 to March 23 in 20 different locations around the state!
