This "unbearable" event is a unique opportunity to show your bravery as you support local Special Olympics athletes by running, walking or "strutting" in the frigid winter streets. 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 raise a minimum of $50 each by event day. The Polar Bear Strut is a project of the Law Enforcement Torch Run(R) for Special Olympics Missouri. Rolla PD and MSHP Troop I are proud to host this event.
The Polar Bear Strut 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.
