Be a fan of brrr-avery and support the Special Olympics athletes of Illinois by jumping into the waters of Loon Lake on Sunday, March 4, for the 2018 Yorkville Polar Plunge.

The funds raised from the Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge will benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois.

Check-in for the plunge begins at 11 a.m. at 13608 Fox Road, Yorkville.

All Polar Plungers are required to collect a minimum of $100 in donations.

People are encouraged to come in costume and to form teams. A team must consist of a minimum of five plungers. Each team member must also raise the minimum of $100 in donations; all team members’ individual fundraising totals will be merged to form a team total.

Plungers will receive incentive prizes based on the amount of money they raise. For raising the minimum of $100, you will receive an official Plunge hooded sweatshirt. Sweatshirts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis the day of the plunge. All individuals who do not receive a sweatshirt the day of the event will have one mailed to them in April. Other prizes are awarded at the $250, $500 and $1,000 levels and will be mailed to participants in April.

Plungers can register at plungeillinois.com or by calling Amanda Nelson at 224-828- 3273.

This is the 19th year of the Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge. In 19 years, more than 66,000 plungers have raised more than $18.4 million.
