Join the Polar Plunge!

CRUSADERS! Brother Rice and Mother McAuley are forming a team to participate in the 19th Annual Chicago Polar Plunge to support Special Olympics!  On March 3, 2019, thousands of people will plunge into Lake Michigan to raise money for activities, food, uniforms and transportation for more than 7,500 Special Olympics athletes in Chicago.

There is NO registration fee to participate! This year, high school students have the chance to participate in the “High School Challenge” and plunge for a reduced fundraising requirement of $100.

If you are interested in taking the plunge, please visit to register for our Brother Rice & Mother McAuley team for the “11:15 AM Wave”.

If you are interested in making a donation to our team, please visit our team page here.

Transportation: There will be free bus transportation from Brother Rice High School to North Avenue Beach for teams of 20 students or more. Students will need to meet at Brother Rice at 9:30 a.m.
