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. It consists of 16 different events that take place across Minnesota during the coldest months of the year. From January through March, our Plunge crew will be traveling around the state to 16 different communities with one goal in mind: raise funds for Special Olympics Minnesota! Do you want to be one of our Brewligans? We know you do. The Uptown Brewligans are taking the plunge! Support our Polar Plunge Team by either joining the team or donating to the cause. The Herkimer and moto-i will have a shuttle bus to and from the lake all day 3/7/15 for both plungers and spectators! Donate to our team – Polar-Plunge-Flyer-2016
