Photos

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. Select Plunge location photos will be loaded to the CL!X website (view and order prints > event photography) the day following the event. All photos are printed and mailed within 24 hours of order receipt.

Time Slots

Individuals and teams are required to sign up for a Plunge time and can do so at Pre-Plunge Check In or Day of Plunge Check In, or the team captain can email us at WBL_Time_Slots@somn.org. Times will be given out every 15 minutes beginning at 12:15 p.m. through 2:15 p.m. In your email, please give your TEAM NAMENUMBER OF TEAM MEMBERS and list your top three time requests in order of preference (ex. 1:15 / 1:30 / 2:00). If your first choice is filled, we’ll go to the next time. Time slots are first come, first serve. All those on a Plunge team will be given the same Plunge time. A team captain can sign up the entire team for a Plunge time slot, but remember that all team members need to check in (if your team captain hasn’t checked you in) at Pre-Plunge Check In or between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on the day of the event in order to plunge.

Plunge Kick-Off Party

Join us for a Plunge kick-off party from 4 – 7 p.m. during the Pre-Plunge Check In on Friday, January 29! As part of Plunge Pre-registration going on, Jimmy’s will be providing a free meal to Plungers and those who RSVP in advance. Munch on food, meet Snowflake the Plunge mascot, check out Plunge merchandise and hear a Special Olympics Minnesota athlete tell you what your Plunge participation means to them. Show your Plunger wristband to gain access to the event! Not a Plunger? Entrance is free, but you must RSVP to plunge@somn.org by Friday, January 22 or a charge of $5 will be taken at the food station.
