Thanks to 112 plungers who raised $20,000 for Special Olympics athletes!
This "unbearable" event is a unique opportunity to show your bravery as you support local Special Olympics athletes by walking, running or crawling into the frigid winter waters. Proceeds benefit Special Olympics Missouri’s year-round program of sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
New in 2014, the Rolla Plunge will be hosted at the "Home of The Fugitive Run; Mud Obstacle Course." This Plunge is unique from the beginning: it will be held at a quarry and is being built for schools and students. The Cool School competition will reward the schools with the largest fundraising total, the largest team, and the best costumes. Registration is open to anyone 10 years of age and older and who raise the minimum of $75. The public is welcome to participate as well, but students and schools are our focus. The Missouri Association of Student Councils (MASC) is Special Olympics Missouri newest partner who encourages students to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics.
Calling all Schools – come one, come all. We can’t wait to see your team raise funds, select a costume/theme, and plunge on Feb. 15. Compete for Cool School title (Middle School/High School Division) and University/College Division and show your team spirit. Check out the details or contact Dana Thielemann, Cool School intern at email@example.com.
