Ever just have the urge to jump into a lake?! Well now you can, and it is for a great cause!
The Polar Plunge is a cool event like no other. The Plunge is a unique opportunity for people all around St. Louis to get together and support our local Special Olympics Missouri athletes by charging into the winter waters of Missouri. The proceeds collected from the event go directly to supporting the year-round sports training and competitions for more than 7,800 children and adults with intellectual disabilities participating in the St. Louis Area.
The Polar Plunge is located at Creve Coeur Lake on February 23, 2013!
Plungers gather teams and work together. Each participant must register and raise a minimum in donations of $75 get to hop, skip or charge into the icy waters.
Participants of the Maryland Heights Polar Plunge must be over the age of 10, and anyone under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Any Student under 18 must have a consent form signed by a parent or guardian.
