The Polar Plunge, presented by the 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 Mendota. 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 02/23/2019 at Lake Mendota located at 1901 Tom Merwin Dr. in Mendota. Registration takes place at 10:30 am with the plunge at 12:00 pm.
Avoid the lines the morning of the Plunge by joining us at one of our Mendota Polar Plunge Pre-Registration events. Location and times coming soon!
Participants will have the opportunity to turn in offline donations and sign their participation waiver. Those who raise $100 or more will receive their Day of Plunge wristband and their 2019 exclusive Polar Plunge sweatshirt.
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. 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 and will be mailed to participants in April.
