2020 Region I Effingham Polar Plunge


Event Description:

The 2020 LETR Polar Plunge, presented by GEICO, benefiting Special Olympics Illinois takes place on Saturday, February 29th, 2020 at Lake Sara in Effingham, IL, and we need your help!!!  Volunteers are essential to creating a quality Polar Plunge environment for the brave plungers, who support Special Olympics Illinois athletes with their donations.  

Volunteers need to check in 10-15 minutes prior to their scheduled volunteer time.  Please bring a picture ID and warm clothing.  Each volunteer will receive a long-sleeved Polar Plunge volunteer shirt as a thank you for the greatly needed help.  

After the plunge, participants, volunteers, and family can enjoy the After-Plunge Party of the Effingham Event Center (formerly the Knights of Columbus Hall) in Effingham, IL. 1501 W. Fayette Ave. Effingham, Illinois 62401
