Quincy’s Polar Plunge Was a Huge Success!

If you were there early Saturday at the 10th Annual Polar Plunge at Moorman Lake in Quincy you know how thick the ice was and how hard the Quincy Fire Department worked to open the water at the beach area.

Moorman Lake, Jeff Dorsey

It took two crews to chop and cut the ice with a chain saw to make the event happen.  For those not there the ice was approximately 8 to 10 inches thick. Was it worth it? You bet it was as some 300 people turned out to watch the event with approximately a third of them plunging into the icy water all for the benefit of Special Olympics Illinois.

When all the plungers had plunged, when everyone had dried off, it was determined that the event made over 57 thousand dollars for Special Olympics. Thanks to everyone who organized the event, participated in it, and prepared the area for it to happen. The Polar Plunge wouldn’t have happened without everyone’s help.
