Polar Plunge for Special Olympics

It is that time of year again, where brave individuals jump into freezing cold water for charities. A new event was added to the Civic Center this year. The Polar Plunge for the Special Olympics. The event was sponsored by Law Enforcement Torch Run and GEICO, and it was a success.

[1]The 2019 Polar Plunge season will run from Friday, February 15 through Sunday, March 24th. All proceeds collected by plungers will benefit the more than 23,000 traditional athletes and 20,000 Young Athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. If you missed the event Saturday, February 16th at the Civic Center there are still many opportunities to take the plunge in surrounding areas.
