Polar Plunge a Huge Success [Photo Gallery]

I am always amazed at why people would like to plunge into a freezing body of water yet they do it year after year.  They did it again this past Saturday for the 9th consecutive year with the Polar Plunge to raise monies for the Special Olympians in West Central Illinois.

Some 320 people signed up for “The Plunge” this year at Moorman Lake in Quincy and in  doing so raised nearly 70-thousand dollars in the process. I have been a part of the planning process for this event from day one and have seen the amount of plungers go from around 30 or so the first time to over 300 this year.

A special thanks to all the volunteers who made it happen as well and to the Quincy Fire Department and Police Departments.  For the 9th straight year, Y101 Radio was proud be be a part of this event. The ice on the lake, which was about 6 inched thick, had to be chopped out so the plungers could “dive” into water from the sandy beach which was delivered by Reichert Trucking of Quincy.  The warming station trucks were provided by DOT Foods.

If you couldn’t be there to see it check out the pictures taken by Jeff Seefeldt. Hopefully all the plungers have warmed up by now.  I know the hearts of the Special Olympians were warmed by the huge turnout on their behalf.
