Official Event Name: 2023 Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Illinois
For more than 20 years, cool individuals have taken the Polar Plunge across the state of Illinois.
These Plungers raise nearly $2,000,000 for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois annually.
Locally, the 2023 Polar Plunge will be held in Peoria at Kelleher’s Irish Pub on Saturday, February 18.
Each year, this support provides critical funding for thousands of athletes and Young Athletes of Special Olympics Illinois so they can compete in year-round sports and training, health and wellness, and leadership programs.
The concept is simple. Participants raise a minimum of $100 in donations from friends, family, and co-workers in exchange for plunging into icy cold waters. Family-friendly costumes are encouraged.
The statewide sponsor for the 2023 Polar Plunge is Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run. The statewide gold sponsor is Jewel-Osco; and the statewide silver sponsor is Gallagher.
Registration is open for the 2023 Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Illinois at plungeillinois.com.
Each plunger receives an exclusive 2023 Polar Plunge sweatshirt (after reaching their fundraising minimum), plus the chance to win additional prizes for raising more money.
See you at Kelleher’s!
