The Rochester Plunge is back for the 18th year! Throughout the day we’ll have something for everyone: Polar Plunge merchandise, Special Olympics Minnesota and more Sponsor Activations and, of course, the Plunge!


Stay warm and still make a difference! There are a variety of volunteer roles available that help support everything that goes on at your Polar Plunge.


Warm-Up to the Plunge

Whistle Binkies will be hosting their annual Warm-Up to the Polar Plunge event, a week before the Plunge, on Saturday, February 2nd and is looking for a few volunteers to help with all of the fun, games, and activities! Please contact Whistle Binkies for more information.
