2014 Chicago Polar Plunge featuring #Swimmyfallon

The 14th Annual Chicago Polar Plunge took place on March 2 at North Avenue Beach, 1600 N. Lake Shore Dr., and raised more than $1 million for the Chicago Special Olympics. With special guests such as Mayor Rahm Emanuel and “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon, the event increased awareness and funds for the Special Olympics with more than 3,000 plungers in attendance. Although the event was enticing for spectators who came to see celebrities freeze, the main goal was to raise money for Special Children’s Charities.
