Shamrock Shivers

Sunday, March 12, 2017


SHAMROCK SHIVERS 2017 is our first annual polar plunge event!  We're jumping into Lake Michigan at Forest Park Beach in Lake Forest IL on the Sunday before St. Patrick's Day, so let's all get our green on!  Costumes and St. Patrick's Day attire are wildly encouraged!

Register individually or as part of a team.  Then set up your fundraising page and tell your friends about your chilly swim for charity!  Go for a swim or a quick wade -- it's up to you! 

  Warm up afterward in the beach pavilion at our Hot Cocoa Bar and enjoy light snacks and refreshments.  

All ages welcome to participate!
