Plunge Information

# of Plungers 2019: 
Total Raised 2019: $24,000



This year’s 2019 Brookings Polar Plunge for Special Olympics South Dakota will be bigger than EVER on Saturday, March 30 outside of Ray’s Corner. Registration will again be at 9:30 am with the plunge kicking off at 11:00 am.

Even with the plunge canceled last year due to a blizzard, we still had 57 people raise over $21,000 for Special Olympics South Dakota and the Special Olympics Brookings area local program! We want to exceed these numbers and get even more participants to take the Plunge – but we need your help to do that! It’s never too early to start fundraising, planning your costume, and recruiting your team members! You may be cold after you jump in the water, but we can promise you that you will warm up quickly when you see the smiles and joy that your efforts and bravery help bring to our 2,500 Special Olympics South Dakota athletes!

We will again be doing the 5k before the plunge! Day of registration starts at 7:30 am with the run kicking off at 8:30 am. Registration will be done at the VFW. If you are interested in only doing the run you can register by clicking the button below. If you are doing BOTH the plunge AND the 5k you can register by clicking on the button in the upper right-hand corner of the page.

Register for the 5k

Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to register and change for the Plunge! Don’t forget to bring a change of clothes (including shoes), towel, funds raised and your costume! Be prepared to have tons of fun while you are “Freezin for a Reason!”. Also, for all you students in high school and college, there are $500 scholarships for every 25 students who raise their $10, so get your friends together to be eligible!
