About the Polar Plunge

Hundreds of polar bears will break the ice at the 2012 Polar Plunge Feb. 25. This event is an opportunity to show your bravery as you support local Special Olympics athletes by running into the sparkling, frigid waters of Lake of the Ozarks. Proceeds support year-round sports training and athletic competition for more than 15,000 children and adults who participate in Special Olympics Missouri.
