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 raise a minimum of $75 each by event day. The Polar Plunge is a project of the Law Enforcement Torch Run(R) for Special Olympics Missouri. MSHP Troop D and Springfield PD are proud to host this event.

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.
