The 20th annual Chicago Polar Plunge offers fearless cold weather warriors the opportunity to take part in an unforgettable day, for an incredible cause. Benefiting the 7500 athletes of the Special Olympics Chicago program, the Chicago Polar Plunge takes place at North Avenue Beach, and has become the must-attend winter event in the city.
