Lake Contrary
1 p.m. 

This "unbearable" event is a unique opportunity to show your bravery as you support local Special Olympics athletes by plunging into the frigid winter waters. Proceeds benefit Special Olympics Missouri. SOMO exists to provide year-round sports and training opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities and our athletes need you to get involved. Become a coach, volunteer, recruit a future athlete and learn how you can make a difference!

Participants must be at least 10 years old and EACH Plunger must raise a minimum of $75 by event day. The Polar Plunge is a project of the Law Enforcement Torch Run(R) for Special Olympics Missouri. St. Joseph PD & Maryville Treatment Center are proud to host this event.

NO DIVING IS ALLOWED AT ANY OF OUR PLUNGES! THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED.

Polar Plunge is a family friendly event. Special Olympics Missouri promotes inclusion as a way of life for not only our athletes but everyone at our events. We reserve the right to ask anyone to alter/remove their costume if found offensive or harmful to those in attendance.  

You may mail offline donations to: Special Olympics Missouri, St. Joseph Polar Plunge, 702 S Woodbine Rd, St Joseph, MO 64507. Please include the names of the Plungers in the memo line of checks.
