Each year, the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics brings together hundreds of warm-hearted individuals from around the Quincy area.  It’s a great way for everyone – individuals, organizations and businesses – to support Special Olympics Illinois.  All funds raised go to provide programing and events for the Special Olympians in our area.

This year’s 2021 Polar Plunge will look a little different thanks to the pandemic, with Plungers committing to “Plunge At Home” in support of the Special Olympics Illinois mission.

So how can you participate?  Well, the concept is simple.  Participants are asked to raise a minimum of $100 in donations from friends, family and co-workers in exchange for getting icy for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois!

Under 18, no problem! Individuals under the age of 18 are able to participate, but must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver form.

Attire: Anything goes, except a wetsuit.  Costumes are encouraged.

Each plunger who raises $100 or more receives an exclusive 2021 Polar Plunge sweatshirt, plus the chance to win additional prizes for raising more money.

Polar Plunges for 2021 should be completed by March 14.
