The Polar Plunge is a series of events where people jump into a frozen lake to support special Olympics Minnesota.
Special Olympics Minnesota is part of a global movement of people creating a new world of inclusion and community. Through athletic, health and leadership programs, SOMN aims to create a world that accepts and welcomes every single person regardless of ability or disability. All funds raised from Polar Plunge support over 8,200 athletes across the state who participate in Special Olympics programs such as Young Athletes, Unified Sports, Healthy Athletes and ALPs University.
The Brainerd Plunge is back for the 14th year! Throughout the day we’ll have something for everyone: Polar Plunge merchandise, Special Olympics Minnesota and more Sponsor Activations and, of course, the Plunge!
