Polar Plunge is Coming to Blaine


The Polar Plunge is an annual event that raises money for Special Olympics Minnesota. The event is held during the winter, when thousands of participants across the state jump into icy cold waters despite the cold temperatures. The Anoka County Polar Plunge has been hosted by the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office for the past 11 years, but in 2024 the City of Blaine will be hosting this great event for the first time.

Statewide there are 20 plunge events and we are working to make the Blaine event the best. The Blaine Police Department and city staff have a long history of participating in the Polar Plunge and now that it is taking place in our own backyard, it is time for the Blaine community to take the plunge. 

Now is the time to start forming your team and join in the fun. We have a goal of raising $155,000 to support Special Olympics MN through the Anoka County Polar Plunge. You can join a team, start your own team, sign up to volunteer, donate to a plunger, or just show up to support those jumping in the icy waters at Lakeside Commons Park. The event will be at Lakeside Commons Park on Saturday, February 24, 2024. Sign up, make a donation, register to volunteer, and more at
