Last Week to Sign Up for Truman Polar Plunge Team

This year’s Polar Plunge for Special Olympics of Missouri will take place in Kirksville Feb. 25, and all members of the campus community are welcome to participate with the University team.

This “unbearable” event is a unique opportunity for participants to show their bravery as they support local Special Olympics athletes by walking, running or crawling into the frigid winter waters Missouri has to offer. Kirksville’s Polar Plunge will take place at the Thousand Hills State Park beach area.

President Sue Thomas will be taking the plunge and leading the team. All students, faculty, staff and friends of the University are invited to participate.

Participants must be at least 10 years old and raise a minimum of $75 each by event day. Those who wish to donate to the cause without taking the plunge can do so. Contributing may also help make it possible for students to be able to participate without having to worry about the signing fee.

Proceeds benefit Special Olympics Missouri’s year-round program of sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
