2018 Polar Plunge in Fox Lake

Join the Lake County Sheriff's Ice Breakers at Fox Lake on February 25 at 1:00 PM 

On Sunday, February 25th at Fox Lake, our team will #PlungeWith Special Olympics Illinois at the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run Polar Plunge. Festivities begin at 1:00 PM.

We have committed to “be bold and get cold” for the 22,000 Special Olympics athletes participating across Illinois.

Our team has set a personal fundraising goal and we need your help to reach it! Any amount is appreciated – it all goes to one “cool” cause and gets us that much closer to our icy dip. Best of all, your donation helps provide athletes with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in Special Olympics programs and reveal their inner champion.

Donating through the Special Olympics IL site is easy and secure. 

We will not be personally contacting you, so if you are solicited by callers stating they are with the Lake County Sheriff's Office – just hang up!

Thanks in advance for your support – and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
