Polar Plunge 2019
Freezin’ for a Reason is what people are doing when they participate in the official party of winter – called the Polar Plunge. Grab your friends, form a team, register online and raise at least $75 by event day and come out for a fun day. Dress in costumes to be judged in our “Golden Plunger” costume contest. Participants must be at least 10 years of age. This is great for family teams, company teams, civic clubs, schools and individuals. The more the merrier. Registration opens at 10 a.m.; plunging starts at noon. Last year 199 people plunged and raised almost $60,000. This year’s goal is 300 polar bears and $70,000! Why do people do this, you ask? All proceeds benefit the programs for athletes in Special Olympics Missouri. And for braggin’ rights and that warm sweatshirt afterwards. Register online at http://www.somo.org/plunge. See you at Bass Pro Lake on March 9, 2019.
