Cape Girardeau Polar Bear Strut

February 5, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

  • This event has passed.


This “unbearable” event is a unique opportunity to show your bravery as you support local Special Olympics athletes by running, walking or rolling around the frigid winter waters of Cape County Park. 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 can be any age, but each person must raise a minimum of $50 by event day. Registration begins at 8:30 AM February 5 or online at SOMO.org. The Polar Bear Strut is a project of the Law Enforcement Torch Run(R) for Special Olympics Missouri. Cape Girardeau PD is 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.2022 Polar Bear Strut web banner logo
