The Polar Plunge is so much more than a bunch of people jumping into freezing cold water in the middle of winter. It's a really fun time and it's very rewarding.

Most people form a team with their friends or co-workers and make a day of it. Area bars are happy to accommodate your pre/post plunge parties. And, when you do good you feel good. Funds raised from the Polar Plunge support an incredible organization - Special Olympics Minnesota.

Last year close to 900 people took the plunge and raised over $243,500. The 2019 Plunge will take place on Saturday February 9th at Foster Arend Park. The goal this year is to raise $265,000. Are you ready to do something awesome while raising money for a great organization?
