2018 Duluth Campus Polar Plunge!

2018 Duluth Polar Plunge

Have you ever jumped into the largest freshwater lake in the world in the middle of winter? If not, we have the perfect opportunity for you! Check this item off your bucket list while supporting a great cause at the same time! The Duluth Polar Plunge is coming up fast (Feb. 17), and we’re looking for members to join our team of medical students, staff, and faculty.

When: Saturday, February 17, 2018
Time: 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Location: Duluth Lakewalk (The Plunge location is on the Lakewalk in Canal Park, by Canal Park Brewery and Endion Station.)

Donation goals for the Plunge start at $75 per person, and every dollar raised helps support Special Olympics Minnesota athletes across the state. Donations can be made online or brought to the plunge on the day of the event.

If you are feeling extra ambitious, or the Plunge doesn’t appeal to you, there is also a Duluth Plunge 5K. The race begins at 9:00 a.m. at the Lakewalk behind Canal Park Lodge, and the registration fee for the race is $35.

All proceeds go to the Special Olympics Minnesota; their mission is to offer children and adults with intellectual disabilities year-round sports training and competitions. To learn more, check out their website
