Polar Plunge


They're call The Frozen Copsicles!

For the 13th year, the VHPD Frozen Copsicles will be at it again to raise money for Special Olympics Illinois. The 2019 Polar Plunge will be held at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 10 at the Twin Lakes Recreation Area in Palatine.

Since 2007, the Frozen Copsicles have raised nearly $26,000 for this great cause. We'd like to continue that success at this year's event. Won't you help us? Of course, you are also welcome to come out and watch.

On Sunday, February 18, 2018, for the 12th year, the VHPD Frozen Copsicles participated in the Polar Plunge to benefit Special Olympics. The event was held 18 at the Twin Lakes Recreation Area in Palatine. 

To everyone who donated and/or came out to support the plungers - thank you very much!

While we are on the subject of supporting the brave Special Olympics athletes, we believe it is fitting to encourage you to visit the Spread The Word To End The Word website.
