Take the Plunge 

The Polar Plunge, presented by Law Enforcement Torch Run and GEICO, is a unique opportunity to support Special Olympics athletes by taking a flying leap – a leap into the frigid waters of Wick’s Lake. Participants must raise $100 in donations from friends, family and co-workers in exchange for jumping into the icy waters. 

Plunge Time Information

The plunge will take place 03/15/2020 at Wick’s Lake located at 777 Jumer Drive at the Jumer’s Casino in Rock Island. Plunger registration will begin at 12:30 pm with the Plunge itself taking place at 2:00 pm.


Information coming soon!

Plunger Incentive Prizes

Plungers will receive incentive prizes based on the amount of money they raise. By raising the minimum of $100, you’ll receive an official Plunge hooded sweatshirt. Sweatshirts will be available on a first come, first serve 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. An email with a redemption code will be sent to all eligible Plungers in early April.
