How to Get Involved

Ok, so you are REALLY COOL because you are here – and because you want to support the Polar Plunge and the athletes here in Illinois.

So, how do you get involved? It’s easy – and you have a couple of options.

  1. You can TAKE THE PLUNGE! We know you are COOL so why not SHOW OFF by taking an icy dip yourself. You can check out our Get Started page to learn more about your options. Then, register for your local Polar Plunge and start fundraising.
  1. You can VOLUNTEER at your local Polar Plunge. Help to make sure the Polar Plunge event is SMOOTH AS ICE. Visit the Special Olympics Illinois volunteer registration site and search Polar Plunge to learn more.
  1. You can PARTNER WITH US! The Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run and Special Olympics Illinois are always looking for SUPER CHILL partners to join our team. If your organization is looking to get involved locally, you can reach out to your local Polar Plunge Director for more information. What a larger presence in the state? Contact George Peterson, Senior Director – Development, LETR.

*Please be safe with your Create Your Own Plunge choices. Special Olympics Illinois is not responsible for any injuries that occur while participating in the Create Your Own Plunge option. Learn more here.*
