About the Gopher Plunge

A BRAND NEW event this year, the Gopher Plunge will take place right in front of TCF Bank Stadium. U of M students, faculty and staff alike will take the on the Plunge in a whole new way: in a pool on campus! Funds raised from this event will go directly back to Special Olympics Minnesota.


Event photos will be posted to our Flickr and Facebook pages as we receive them.  We are fortunate to have wonderful volunteer photographers for our events, and it typically takes a few weeks until we receive and post photos so please stay tuned.


Participants will earn more incentives as they raise more money!

$75 – Long-sleeved t-shirt
$150 – Long sleeved t-shirt and U of M hat
$300 – Long sleeved t-shirt and U of M flag

Check out all the incentives!
