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 Moorman 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, February 24 at Moorman Lake located at North 36th St., Quincy. Registration takes place at 10:30am with the plunge at 12pm. There will be changing trailers at the plunge site as well as hot cocoa to help you warm up out of the water.
Don't forget to come and join us at the after-plunge party at 12:45pm at the Quincy Mall Community Room. Here you can meet the athletes of Region H and help celebrate another great year.
