Polar Plunge

Themed Teams Jumped Into Chilly Waters At Lake Forest To Raise More Than $8,200 To Send Local Athletes To Special Olympics State Games

Teams with various themes — such as the Incredibles, the Seven Dwarfs,101 Dalmations and Avatar — jumped into the cold waters at the Lake Forest Estates marina in the second annual Polar Plunge. Students and teachers from Ste. Genevieve R-II schools, from Valle Catholic High School and the community raised money to send local athletes with developmental disabilities to the Missouri State Games of Special Olympics later this year at Missouri State University in Springfield. First-responders had various vehicles on hand, including a helicopter, for photo opportunities, and music and food also were part of the day’s festivities. (Photos by TOBY CARRIG/Herald staff)
