Mundelein Police Department to Participate in the Polar Plunge

Mundelein, IL—02/05/20 — On Sunday, February 16, 2020 members of the Mundelein Police Department will immerse themselves in the frigid waters of Fox Lake in order to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Illinois.  The Polar Plunge, presented by the Law Enforcement Torch Run and GEICO, is a unique opportunity to support Special Olympics athletes by raising funds and taking a dip into Illinois’ frigid winter waters.

Mundelein residents and friends of the MPD are invited to join the Mundelein Police Department at the Fox Lake Lakefront Park on Nippersink Drive at 1 p.m. to support Special Olympics.  The event is a fun social gathering for a great cause. Last year, the Mundelein Police Department raised $39,353.40 for Special Olympics through many events that they hosted throughout the year including the Polar Plunge.

Special Olympics Illinois is a year-round program of sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics programs are now in more than 170 countries with 4.5 million athletes.­ In 2020, Special Olympics Illinois will host Polar Plunges at 26 locations across the state! This event is a great way for everyone – individuals, organizations and businesses – to support the athletes of Special Olympics IL!
