ALEXANDRIA — Ready to take the plunge?
The Alexandria Polar Plunge will take place on Lake L’Homme Dieu in front of Zorbaz and Lure Lakebar this Saturday, Feb. 25, beginning at 1 p.m. The spot is where the very first plunge took place, back in 2007, when Lure Lakebar was Bug-A-Boo Bay and Zorbaz had not opened yet.
Pre-registration/check-in will take place Friday, Feb. 24, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Copper Trail Brewing Company. On the day of the plunge, check-in will begin at noon at Zorbaz.
The Cool School Plunge will take place Wednesday, March 8, beginning at 1 p.m. at DMS. Dates and times for both events are subject to change, depending on the weather.
Proceeds will benefit Special Olympics Minnesota.
At the 2022 event, about 150 jumpers raised $71,000.
Over the course of the last 16 years, the Alexandria Polar Plunge has raised more than $1 million for Special Olympics.
The goal this year is $75,000 but organizers would love to see the event hit the $100,000 mark.
