Plunge Cancelation 

Due to concerns related to the spread of the Coronavirus, Special Olympics Illinois has made the difficult decision to suspend all sports, training and competition activities involving all athletes as well as our Polar Plunge events through March 31, 2020.  Information regarding sweatshirt pick-up will be available soon.  

Take the Plunge 

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 Twin Lakes. 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 03/22/2020 at Twin Lakes located at 1200 East Lake Drive in Palatine. Plunger registration will begin at 10:00 am with the Plunge itself taking place at 12:00 pm.

Parking Information

Plungers and spectators should park in BMO Harris Lot located at 800 E Northwest Hwy, Palatine, IL 60074.  Parking onsite at Twin Lakes is reserved for individuals that have handicapped placards. Please do not attempt to park in the Lakefront Park lots if this does not apply to you.


Want to skip the registration line on plunge day?  Then come out to one of your pre-registration events.  Individual plungers or team captains can drop off any checks or cash they received and pick up sweatshirts and wristbands.  A waiver must be turned in for each plunge to get a wristband. 

Saturday, March 21, 2020 at Twin Lakes Recretaion Area (1200 East Lake Drive in Palatine) from 12p to 3pm.

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. An email with a redemption code will be sent to all eligible Plungers in early April.
