Due to the impending weather on Saturday, we have adjusted our schedule for the Polar Plunge.  After consulting with KOMU meteorologist Tim Schmidt, who will be one of our emcees, we have adjusted the schedule as follows:

  • 1:00 pm Registration Opens
  • 2:30 pm Parade of Costumes Lineup
  • 2:45 pm Parade of Costumes Starts
  • 3:00 pm Plunge Begins

Safety is our No. 1 priority. We appreciate our participants' flexibility to ensure it is safe, fun and successful event.  We love our polar bears!

Join us for the Columbia Polar Plunge on March 9, 2019 at Bass Pro Shops Lake. 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!
