Announcement Regarding Plunge Incentives

To all 2020 Plungers and SUPER Plungers,

On behalf of all of us here at Special Olympics Illinois (SOILL), we would like to thank you for taking part in the 2020 Polar Plunge season. While the last few weeks have been difficult for all of us, it is deeply heartwarming to know that through it all, our Plungers have continued to put the athletes of SOILL at the forefront of their minds, and actions.

April 3, 2020 would have been the date our Plunge incentive redemption codes would have been sent to you, but with the current climate regarding COVID-19, we are postponing the incentive redemption process until a future date. The vendor we use to get product for your incentives, Will Enterprises, is considered a non-essential business and is currently closed as a result of this pandemic. It is imperative to keep our staff and vendor safe and heed the call to work from home.

Unfortunately, there is no concrete date on when we will be able to safely begin the fulfillment process. We will continue to update you as things progress, but please know that your hard earned incentives will be awarded!

We apologize for any inconvenience on this, but we hope that you understand why this decision has been made. Thank you, again, for taking the Plunge to support our athletes across this state. Your support means the world to them and their families. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions by emailing

Thanks and stay safe,

The Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run Team
