The Polar Plunge, presented by Law Enforcement Torch Run and GEICO, is a unique opportunity to support Special Olympics athletes by taking a flying leap – a leap into the frigid waters of Lake Decatur. Participants must raise $100 in donations from friends, family and co-workers in exchange for jumping into the icy waters.

The plunge will take place Saturday, March 4 at Lake Decatur located at The Beach House, 2301 N. Lakeshore Dr., Decatur, IL. Registration begins at 10:00am with the plunge taking place at 12pm. Download your plunge waiver here.
Beat the crowd and pre-register on March 2 at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 520 E. North St., Decatur, from 4-7pm. Pick up your sweatshirt and wristband and save time in the morning.
Plunger Incentive Prizes
Plungers will receive incentive prizes based on the amount of money they raise. By raising the minimum of $100, you’ll receive an official Plunge hooded sweatshirt and admission to the post-plunge party. Sweatshirts will be available on a first come, first serve basis the day of the plunge. All individuals who do not receive a sweatshirt the day of the event will have one mailed to them in April. Other prizes are awarded at the $250, $500 and $1,000 levels.
