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 Olson 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 Saturday, March 3 at Olson Lake located at 7318 Harlem Rd., Loves Park. Registration takes place at 10:30am with the plunge at noon.


There will be two pre-registration events. The first will take place on Tuesday, February 27 at the Stables located at 87 S. Galena, Dixon from 3:30-6:30pm. The second will take place on Wednesday, February 28 at Peak Sports located at 4401 Peak Dr., Loves Park from 3:30-6:30pm.

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.
