It’s time to name the Polar Bear, and we need your help!
The polar bear has been the mascot for the Chicago Polar Plunge for past decade. You may have seen them at the Plunge, on our shirts, or even around town taking photos and giving high fives! As we prepare for our #20thAnniBRRsary on March 1, we think it’s a good time to finally give the bear a name, so we’re holding a contest.
The #NameTheChiPolarBear contest will begin Tuesday, December 3. We will be accepting submissions through Monday, December 9. The bear will pick their four favorites and you’ll be able to vote on those Tuesday, December 10 through Monday, December 16. Chicagoans near and far are invited to submit suggestions here or on our social media pages with the hashtag #NameTheChiPolarBear!
