The Polar Plunge will take place Feb. 22nd. Brave men and women from around the area will don costumes and swimwear and take “polar” dips into Creve Coeur Lake. Their Reason for Freezin’? The athletes of Special Olympics Missouri! All proceeds from this year’s event will benefit training and competition for the 8,000 Special Olympics Missouri athletes in the St. Louis Metro Area.
The Polar Plunge is open to anyone 10 years or older who is a fan of having a good time for a good cause. The event will take place at the Tremayne Shelter, Creve Coeur Lake 2348 Creve Coeur Mill Rd, Maryland Heights 63146. Day-of registration begins at Noon and the Plunge goes until 4:00 PM.
All plunging participants will receive an official Polar Plunge commemorative shirt, bragging rights for freezing your fur off, and a free BBQ.
In 2013, Polar Plungers raised over $105,000 for STL Area Special Olympics Missouri athletes. Each participant must raise a minimum of $75 to participate and can earn incentives by reaching fundraising goals. This year’s goal is $125,000, and organizers hope to break the million-dollar mark across the state with 13 plunge events.
Costumes are highly encouraged. Awards will be given in the following categories: for the Top Fundraisers, Top Fundraising Group and Top Fundraising School. (All must be pre-registered.) Golden Plunger Awards for the most creative costumes will also be presented to Top Group and Top Individuals. The Polar Plunge is sponsored by Shop ‘n Save.
