American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Lake Zurich hosts the Purple Plunge on March 15 at 9 a.m. at Breezewalk Park and Beach, where participants can wade in or take the full plunge into the water of Lake Zurich for charity. Each participant can collect pledges and form a team to take the plunge together. There is a $10 registration fee. Participants can wear costumes, carry signs, and just be silly as spectators cheer on the brave plungers. The event includes a costume party and a post party at noon at Score Board Bar & Grill. All funds raised will benefit the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Lake Zurich. First 100 plungers to register receive a free T-shirt, courtesy of Beelow's Steakhouse. There will be prizes for best costume and raffle tickets for sale. A pre-registration is March 8 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Score Board Bar & Grill. Registration at the plunge starts at 9 a.m. at Score Board Bar & Grill. To sign up online and collect donations, visit http://www.crowdrise.com/LZPurplePolarPlunge2014.
