The Lansing Polar Plunge takes place on Sunday, February 28, 2016 at the Eagle Eye Golf Course (15500 Chandler Rd).

The Polar Plunge series is known for its zany costumes and courageous participants. After raising funds, these participants dress up in costume and prepare to plunge, ready to jump in and freeze their fur for a good cause. Money raised goes to providing free sports training, competition and health screenings for nearly 21,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Michigan.
The annual Michigan Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Polar Plunge is the largest fundraiser for Special Olympics Michigan (SOMI), raising more than $1 million dollars each year. The Lansing Polar Plunge has raised nearly $550,000 over the past 11 years, including nearly $65,000 in 2015.
Online registration for the 2016 Lansing Polar Plunge is open now at www.firstgiving.com.
28 Polar Plunges are scheduled to take place across Michigan this winter. A complete list of plunges can be found at PlungeMI.com.
