This year’s 2019 Mitchell Polar Plunge for Special Olympics South Dakota will be bigger than EVER on Friday, March 22 at the Avera Sports and Wellness Complex at DWU! Registration opens at 6:00 pm with plunging starting at 7:00 pm. 

In 2018, 65 Plungers raised over $25,000 for Special Olympics South Dakota and the Special Olympics Mitchell 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 2,100 Special Olympics South Dakota athletes!

Register now to get started on your fundraising quest! Don’t forget to check out the website visit for more tools and resources! We have cool prizes you could get for going above and beyond in your fundraising!

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!”
