Special Olympics Polar Plunge – 2018February 27, 2018
2018 Special Olympics Minnesota Polar Plunge
Each year, the Special Olympics Polar Plunge challenges thousands of brave jumpers at numerous locations around the state of Minnesota. 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.
More than 680 brave souls took the Plunge in South Metro on February 24, 2018 to support Special Olympics Minnesota. These Plungers raised $146,000!
The concept is 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 2012, their amazing efforts raised $2.85 million for our athletes.
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.
