Polar Plunge

Coronavirus Updates and Information:

Due to concerns related to the spread of the Coronavirus, Special Olympics Illinois has made the difficult decision to suspend all sport, training and competition activities involving all athletes as well as all fundraising events through March 31, 2020, at which time the situation will be reevaluated. The safety and concern of the athletes and volunteers is the organization’s top priority.

This includes State Basketball, Unified State Basketball, the remaining  Polar Plunges, Chicago Baseball Night and all local/regional competitions.

“This is not an easy decision. However, with the unpredictable nature of the Coronavirus we felt the prudent thing to do was to cancel our competitive events in an effort to protect our athletes and their families,” stated Special Olympics Illinois President and CEO, Dave Breen.

NOTE: There are currently no confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) with any Special Olympics Illinois athlete.
