Polar Plunge Season Supporting Local Special Olympics Athletes Right Around the Corner


The 2023 Polar Plunge season for Special Olympics Illinois gets underway locally on Sunday, February 26th at Lake Storey in Galesburg, followed by Saturday, March 4th at Chandler Park in Macomb, and Sunday, March 12th at Bally’s Casino and Hotel in Rock Island. Local Special Olympics Region F Assistant Director Jennifer Davis explains the registration process:

“You can sign up as an individual or you can sign up as a team, either way is great. We have a costume contest. It is tons of fun, but if you sign up now at plungeillinois.com, go there and register. Our website sets everybody up with a secure online fundraising page they can share on social media, an easy way to collect donations from family and friends. Everybody has to raise at least $100 to go into the water and then they get a sweatshirt and lunch afterwards.”

Proceeds raised during Polar Plunge season fund over half of the budget for the local athletes in Region F.
