Brrring it on! It’s never too early to sign up for the Polar Plunge. You can show your support for Special Olympics Minnesota (SOMN) and learn firsthand what it means to be ‘freezin’ for a reason’!

It takes courage, bravery and a little bit of crazy to be a Polar Plunger. Plungers put it all on the line as they jump to frozen glory to raise money for Special Olympics Minnesota. The funds raised benefit more than 8,100 SOMN athletes as they train, compete and transform themselves, their communities and the world. You can register now for the 2016 Rochester Polar Plunge.

The Rochester Plunge will be held on February 13, 2016 at Foster Arend Park (4109 East River Road). Day of the Plunge check-in will be held at the Plunge site. In 2015, more than 856 brave souls took the Plunge in Rochester and raised approximately $211,000 in support of Special Olympics Minnesota.

Join these “do-gooders” as they take the Plunge into Minnesota’s frigid waters by following four simple steps. First, register online at plungemn.org. Participants may Plunge as individuals or in teams and are also encouraged to wear unique and outrageous costumes on Plunge day. Second, ask everyone from family to friends to your community to pledge to your Plunge. Each participant must raise a minimum of $75. Third, check-in on Plunge day and bring your pledges with you. Shoes, towel and fun are also required! Finally, take a deep breath and get ready to be freezin’ for a reason!
