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 Lake Michigan. 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 Sunday, February 18 at Lake Michigan located at 1811 Sheridan Rd., Evanston. Registration takes place at 11:00am with the plunge at 1pm. The post-plunge party will take place immediately following the plunge at Prairie Moon.


Information coming soon!

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.
