More than 80 St. Cloud State plungers braved the frigid waters of Pleasant Lake in February for the annual Polar Bear Plunge to raise money for Special Olympics.
Organizations representing the university included the Herberger School of Business, the Swimming & Diving Team, Delta Sigma Phi, Lawrence Hall/International Students and more.
Air temperatures were about 10 degrees during the event, but that didn’t stop almost 700 people from Central Minnesota from plunging to raise $70,914, according to the Polar Plunge website. St. Cloud State raised $8,833.
