The Polar Bear Plunge, presented by Minnesota law enforcement as part of the year-round Law Enforcement Torch Run® events to benefit Special Olympics, is a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and businesses to support Special Olympics athletes by jumping into frigid Minnesota waters.

The concept is simple: Participants raise a minimum of $75 and jump into one of Minnesota's frozen lakes. But the Plunges are so much more than that. They're the kind of fun and exciting events that you really have to experience to understand. So grab a friend, coworker, family member or go solo—register today and you'll have bragging rights for years to come. Not just anyone can say they jumped into a Minnesota lake in the dead of winter, right?
