Ste. Genevieve High School F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Organization will be hosting the Second Annual Ste. Genevieve County Polar Plunge at Lake Forest Estates Marina on Saturday, March 2. The event will begin at noon, with participants taking the “plunge” at 2 pm. The event is co-sponsored by the Ste. Genevieve County Community Center.
This event raises money for our local Special Olympic athletes to participate in the Missouri State Special Olympic Track Meet at Missouri State University. Last year the event raised over $15,000 and covered 100% of transportation, lodging, uniforms, and registration costs for the athletes, parents, coaches, and “buddies” for the weekend-long event.
Saints Til Friday will be providing a sound system/DJ Booth, Scooter Burgers will be supplying a food truck, and there will be tours of emergency vehicles available for kids. Heated changing tents will be supplied by Cotton’s Ace Hardware and will be available for all participants.
