2022 Polar Plunge- Palatine- B

Join us on March 6, 2022

Sorry, registrations are currently closed.
You took the leap and helped raise over $109,000 to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois!  Thank you for making the 1st year back in Palatine since 2018 a huge success!

Polar Plunge Sweatshirts

Didn't get a sweatshirt on Saturday or Sunday but raised your $100.  Don't worry one will be sent to you. 


Want to help out Special Olympics Illinois a bit more and get some cool swag doing it?  If you raise $250, $500 or $1,000 you get even more cool items.  You are able to raise money on your Donor Drive page until the end of March!


Want to relive the day?  Below is a link to the Special Olympics Illinois Flickr page.  We are still waiting for a few of photographers to upload their pictures so check back from time to time.
