Take the Polar Bear Plunge

A polar bear plunge is defined as an event held during the winter where  participants enter a body of water despite the low temp in the United States. Normally held to raise money for charitable organizations they can also be hosted on New Year's Day as part of a celebration.

Each and every year there are those with warm hearts that head out into the cold water for a good reason. Individuals, organizations and businesses all join in to support Special Olympics Illinois. The funds raised thru this campaign will go to provide programing and events for more than 23,000 traditional athletes and 20,000 young adults. Thus allowing these men and women to show what they can do to the world

Those participating in the polar plunge will each raise a minimum of $100. Friends, family members and co-workers will help sponsor these participants who plan to jump into icy waters in the middle of the winter. Age is not the issue as those above the age of 18 or those under 18 with a parent signed waiver can participate.

Under 18, no problem! Individuals under the age of 18 are able to participate but must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver form.  No one of any age is allowed to be carried into the water.

Attire: Anything goes, except a wetsuit.  Shoes recommended; costumes are encouraged.  Remember to bring a towel to dry off!

Each plunger receives an exclusive 2019 Polar Plunge sweatshirt and entrance into a Post-Plunge party (when applicable), plus the chance to win additional prizes for raising more money.

Polar Plunges will take place from Feb. 15 to March 24 in 23 different locations around the state!
