Mille Lacs Polar Bear Plunge
, On Saturday, March 9, Grand Casino Mille Lacs will sponsor the second annual Mille Lacs Polar Bear Plunge at Eddy’s Lake Mille Lacs Resort to raise money for Special Olympics Minnesota. So far, 44 individuals have registered to participate in the Mille Lacs Polar Bear Plunge, as of December 30. The goal for this year’s plunge is to get double the number of plungers from last year – that’s more than 300 plungers. Are you up for the challenge? Grab a friend, family member or co-worker and sign up today!
At the plunge, Grand Casino Mille Lacs will provide a 20-person hot tub and changing facilities for plungers as well as concessions and other entertainment for spectators.
Area law enforcement, fire departments, search and rescue teams, the Mille Lacs Band DNR, and Grand Casino Mille Lacs staff will oversee the event.
If you would like to participate or donate to a team or individual, visit www.plungemn.org and choose the Mille Lacs plunge location. Donations will be accepted on the day of the plunge and anyone interested in participating can register on the day of the event at the Waterfront Restaurant at 11 a.m. on March 9. Lake Mille Lacs plunges will follow at 1 p.m.
Participants will need to raise a minimum of $75 to take a dip in the frozen lake. It’s fun and exciting event that you have to experience to understand!
