Polar Plunge


The Frozen Copsicles and the 2018 Polar Plunge for Illinois Special Olympics

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

The six members of the Frozen Copsicles team raised $850.00 for Special Olympics Illinois. Since 2007, the Copsicles have raised nearly $26,000.00. Nice job team. 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.
