The Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Minnesota (SOMN) is back for the 2015 season and registration is now open. With a new name, a new website, a new look and four new locations, the Polar Plunge is bigger than ever.

As plungers jump into frigid Minnesota water, they raise money to benefit more than 8,000 SOMN athletes.
In 2014, more than 510 people took the plunge in Alexandria and raised approximately $107,158 in support of SOMN.

Plungers should ask everyone from family to friends to pledge to their plunge. Each participant must raise a minimum of $75. The average plunger each raised more than $210 in 2014.
