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 Manteno 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 Manteno Lake located at 851 North Main St. in Manteno. Registration takes place at 12:00 pm with the plunge at 2:00 pm.


Avoid the lines the morning of the Plunge by joining us at our Manteno Polar Plunge Pre-Registration event taking place on Friday, March 1 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Manteno Sportsmen’s Club located at 851 N. Main Street in Manteno.

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. 

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.
