Each year, the Polar Plunge challenges thousands of warm-hearted individuals at numerous locations across the state. It’s a great way for everyone – individuals, organizations and businesses – to support Special Olympics Illinois. All funds raised go to provide programing and events for more than 23,000 traditional athletes and 17,000 Young Athletes participating in Illinois.

In a nutshell, participants collect a minimum of $100 in pledges from friends, family and co-workers, in exchange for jumping into icy waters in the middle of winter. All proceeds collected by Plungers benefit Special Olympics Illinois athletes. Prizes may be awarded in several categories.

Think you have what it takes? The concept is simple: participants raise a minimum of $100 in donations from friends, family and co-workers in exchange for taking an icy dip in an Illinois lake. Anyone can plunge – young and old, but only registered plungers will be allowed in the water.
