2022 Peoples Gas Chicago Polar Plunge presented by Jackson

Welcome to the Peoples Gas Team page! We’re hoping to make this our biggest team yet to benefit the wonderful athletes supported by Special Olympics Chicago. Through our teamwork and support from family and friends, we can provide athletes opportunities to compete, create lasting friendships, and experience joy through inclusion and sports.

The Chicago Polar Plunge is headed back to the beach! We can't wait to be reunited with all of our plungers, volunteers, and supporters on March 6, 2022, at North Avenue Beach!

Register today and come #BACKTOTHEBEACH, where we’ll be #FREEZINFORAREASON to support the 7,500+ special olympians who compete year-round in Chicago. All funds raised will benefit the Special Olympics Chicago athletes, covering program costs such as transportation, sports equipment, team uniforms, and meals. Because of your participation, people with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to discover new strengths, abilities, and accomplishments. 

Plunge as an individual alongside other supporters, join a team, or create your own fearless team. Recruit friends, family, and co-workers to #MAKEASPLASH.

Unable to make it to North Ave Beach on March 6th? Register as a virtual plunger! Create your own Plunge, send in a photo or video, raise $200, and we will send you a commemorative Chicago Polar Plunge shirt and feature you in our virtual plunger compilation video! 

Make the #PolarPromise and register for the Chicago Polar Plunge!
