2013 Polar Bear Plunge Registration Now Open–Join the MIX 108 Team!
If you've ever braved the icy depths of Lake Superior in February, you are a true warrior. Or a glutton for punishment. Or...you just like the idea of raising money for the Special Olympics of Minnesota. Whatever your reason, it's time to get registered! The 2013 Polar Bear Plunge registration is now open, and we want you to join the MIX 108 Team!
If you don't want to jump, you can always pledge for the MIX 108 Miracles team too.
The Duluth Police Department puts a lot of time and effort into making the Duluth Polar Bear Plunge happen, and we're so excited to plunge with them again in 2013!
2013 will be the 16th year of the Polar Bear Plunge in Minnesota. The first one took place at Como Lake in 1998; its 65 participants raised $20,000.
In 2005, 100 Plungers raised $275,000 at five Plunge locations.
By 2008, Minnesota had 11 Plunges, featured 2,500 participants, and raised $725,000.
Just two years after that, in 2010, the Polar Bear Plunge took place in 13 different locations, included over 7,000 participants, and raised $1.4 million.
In 2012 over 12,000 participants raised over $2.8 million for Special Olympics Minnesota!
Join the fun, and for a great cause!
