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 Michigan. 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 02/17/2019 at Lake Michigan located at 2311 Campus Dr. in Evanston. Registration takes place at 10:00 am with the plunge at 1:00 pm. Participants should bring all offline donations and a signed participation waiver. Individuals under the age of 18 must have a parent or gaurdian sign their waiver. All Plungers must raise a minimum of $100 to participate and will receive a 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.
