The Special Olympics Polar Plunge is an event that we have been doing for many years now at Y101, and it is always fun!

The Polar Plunge is presented by the Law Enforcement Torch Run and Geico. Plungers will take a deep breath and jump into the icy waters of Quincy's Moorman Lake at Upper Moorman Park to raise money for Special Olympics Illinois.

One of the plungers this year is one of our own at Y101 and KICK-FM. Michael Rose will jump into the nice icy lake with his Chuck Taylor tennis shoes on and help raise money for the cause. We encourage everyone to make a donation in Michael's name on his fundraising page.

Quincy's event will begin with check in from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The plunge will take place immediately following. Online registration for Saturday's plunge will end at 7 Saturday morning.
