This "unbearable" event is a unique opportunity to show your bravery as you support local Special Olympics athletes by walking, running or crawling into the frigid winter waters that Missouri has to offer.

Participants must be at least 10 years old and raise a minimum of $75 each by event day (every member on a team must raise the $75 minimum).

New to 2021:

We will have a handful of COVID-related safety measures in place (likely including staggered start times, etc.) that we will announce as it gets closer. If you aren't comfortable coming to Plunge in-person, that's okay, we have created a virtual option (see below).

All of our Plunges will have a virtual option that will allow you to register and raise money while Plunging safely from your home (cold shower, ice bucket dumped on your head, kiddie pool, etc.).

A registration fee of $10 is charged at the time of registration (grade schools and high schools exempted). This $10 DOES go toward your $75 fundraising minimum, so you only need to then raise at least $65 to participate.

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

The Polar Plunge is a project of the Law Enforcement Torch Run(R) for Special Olympics Missouri. Various police departments, highway patrols, correctional centers and other law enforcement agencies around the state are proud to host this event.

Proceeds benefit Special Olympics Missouri’s year-round program of sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. SOMO exists to provide year-round sports and training opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities and our athletes need you to get involved.
