Polar Plunge Fact Sheet Donation Form 11 5 09[1]

  1. 1. What is the Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Illinois? The Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge is a unique opportunity to support Special Olympics athletes by taking a flying leap – a leap into the frigid waters of an Illinois lake. Participants raise at least $75 in donations from friends, family and co-workers in exchange for jumping into the icy waters in the middle of winter. Each plunger receives a Polar Plunge sweatshirt and entrance into a Post-Plunge Party, plus the chance to win additional prizes for raising more money. All proceeds collected by plungers benefit Special Olympics Illinois athletes. Nearly $2.5 million has been raised by more than 8,100 plungers since the event’s inception 10 years ago. Attire: Anything but a wet suit. Shoes are recommended and costumes are encouraged. Don’t forget a towel with which to dry off! In 2009, Polar Plunges will take place from Feb. 28 to March 21 in 17 different locations around the state!
