Each year, the Special Olympics Minnesota Polar Plunge challenges thousands of brave jumpers at numerous locations around the state. It’s a great way for everyone—individuals, organizations and businesses—to get involved in supporting Special Olympics Minnesota. All funds raised go towards programming and events.

The last few years have been crazy to say the least, but even in times such as these… we endeavor to make “normal” times for our special athletes. We hope we can count on you to help us out, to make this year the best that it can be.

BigGun’s Purple Plungers

Admiral BigGun’s Purple Plungers were proud to contribute as a team last year and raised over $8900.00!

This year… with your help, we hope to reach $10K

Raising this much money isn’t easy… but we know we have a great bunch of folks in greater Minnesota that support us and, with your help, we hope to make 2022 the best year in Otter Tail County EVER!

What is Polar Plunge?

The concept is pretty simple: participants raise a minimum of $75 and take a dip into one of Minnesota’s frozen lakes. But the Plunges are so much more than that: They’re the kind of fun and thrilling events that you really have to experience to understand.

Your donation is tax deductible and supports over 8,000 Special Olympics Minnesota athletes!

The Polar Plunge wouldn’t happen without the support of Law Enforcement!

Plunges are a part of the year-round fundraising program called the Law Enforcement Torch Run, through which law enforcement personnel from across the state raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Minnesota. Throughout the year, men and women in law enforcement volunteer their time and energy to host events to support us. In 2020, their amazing efforts are on pace to raise $4 million for our athletes. The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office led the charge at this new event and we are glad they did.

The Polar Plunges may be just one part of the many events that the Law Enforcement Torch Run hosts each year, but they’re certainly the most well known. Law enforcement folks sit on the planning committee at all Plunge locations, volunteer on Plunge days, recruit the dive teams to ensure safety at all events, help with set up and tear down of the Plunge sites, and work all year round to make these events a huge success.
