Take the Cool School Polar 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 Chuck Fruit Aquatic Center. This year Special Olympics Illinois - Region J will be hosting a Cool School Polar Plunge specific for school aged plungers.   Participants must raise $100 in donations from friends, family and co-workers in exchange for jumping into the icy waters.
