Take the Plunge

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 Olson Lake. Participants must raise $100 in donations from friends, family and co-workers in exchange for jumping into the icy waters. 

Plunge Time Information

The plunge will take place 03/02/2019 at Olson Lake located at Rock Cut State Park in Loves Park. 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 two Rockford Polar Plunge Pre-Registration events taking place the week of the Plunge.  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. 

The Stables (87 Galena Ave, Dixon IL) on Tuesday, Feb 26 from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Peak Sports (4401 Peak Dr., Loves Park, IL) on Wednesday, Feb 27 from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. 

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. 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.
