Team MN Atheist Polar Plunge for the Special Olympics Shiver for a good cause

Join the Minnesota Atheist Polar Plunge team and raise money for the Minnesota Special Olympics! Jump right in with us or help us out from the sidelines as we throw ourselves into supporting this worthy event! Each plunger is asked to raise $75.00 or more, so if you can't make it but want to help, please pledge to support one of our team members.

Every year crowds of devoted winter enthusiasts take a dip in Minnesota lakes to raise money for our state's Special Olympics. This February Minnesota Atheists is joining in, and we want you to be a part of it. The time is approximate (we'll update this page as the day approaches), but the fun and excitement is definite—you have to experience it for yourself to understand.

Free Minnesota Atheists t-shirts will be given to all team members, and we welcome suggestions to add to our plunge wear. The more colorful and coordinated our look, the better! Plungers will need a change of clothes, and twin heated tents will be available for boys and girls. For more information, visit the Polar Plunge Tips and Policies Page:

Register or pledge to a plunger at:

Afterwards we'll head over to a local Davanni's to warm our insides with pizza and hoagies. Here's the address:

[masked]th Ave NW
Coon Rapids, MN 55448

(It's just off Highway 10 & Round Lake Blvd. Look to the north or you'll miss it.)

Please tell us in your RSVP if you'd like to plunge, be part of our support team, or pledge. Whatever you do, don't miss the chance to join in the fun!

    Ditto to what Caroline said, and special thanks to Bernadette and Phil for organizing! It was great to have 3 more plungers than last year for a total of 7!

    We are in line at the Plunger Entrance Tent.

    On MN 242 now. I'm sorry we are running behind.

    I recommend parking at or near Famous Dave's and using the shuttle bus to the lake. It's walking distance to Davanni's from there. The address: 3211 Northdale Blvd NW, Coon Rapids, MN 55448.
    I will bring an extra Aints t-shirt (large).
    I understand we have to be there and checked in no later than 1 p.m. Do we have a plunge time yet?

      Thanks, Bernadette. I'll meet you and Phil at the shuttle stop at Famous Dave's at noon.

    Hi plungers. I have wondering how people would feel about wearing our Mr. Paul Ants shirt during the jump this year? If you do not have one I am sure we could get one for you.

    • Mahad

      Thanks Bernadette!! I do not have one and don't mind wearing one at all. I have one or two coworkers that would like to join in our group as well. I will pass along the info I got from you. Hopefully we will reach our overall team.

      I read this wrong the first time (thought I had to have a shirt already), but if it's still an option, I'm in!

  • Dan K

    Suddenly, freezing water is starting to feel like a real and present danger...

  • Andre G.

    I am not that crazy.

    February 2, 2014

  • Heather H

    Something else came up so I don't think I'll be able to make it there in time. Hopefully someone else will take photos this time!

    • Caroline

      Awww darn. You did such a great job last year.

      January 29, 2014

  • Heather H

    I'll be on the support team and take photos!

    I want to do this, buy it's Cookie Go Day for Girl Scouts, so we'll see as the time approaches what I'll have time to do. It might be to just throw money at you.
