Why You Should Support The Polar Plunge This Weekend

Show some warm heart.

It’s that time of year again. The air is cold, and Lake Michigan continues to alternate between frozen and full of broken ice. You know what this means– it’s Polar Plunge season! North Avenue Beach will host the 19th Annual Chicago Polar Plunge on Sunday, March 3rd.

Not sure what the Polar Plunge is? We can help.

Each year, people and teams register for the Polar Plunge. These teams and individuals raise money, and all funds raised benefit the Special Olympics Chicago athletes, including transportation, equipment, uniforms, and food. In the city of Chicago alone, there are 7,500+ special olympians who compete. Be #FREEZINFORAREASON and join the cause!

Even if you don’t feel like taking the plunge yourself, you can donate to the cause, or support others who are taking the plunge by cheering them on this coming Sunday.
