Get ready to plunge Emporia! See all the details regarding this event below.

Location: Mouse Lake (1101 Topeka, Emporia, KS 66801)

 Join us for a 5K run/walk or a 1 mile fun run/walk before you jump into the water! Run for competitive time or enjoy a stroll in the cold. Either way you’ll be strutting your stuff for Special Olympics Kansas! The Polar Strut, like the Polar Plunge, requires a minimum donation to participate, and we encourage you to raise as much as you can for the cause.

Every dollar you earn helps to keep more than 4,000 Kansas athletes with intellectual disabilities on the playing field throughout the year!

When you register for the Plunge or Strut online you can create your own fundraising webpage to share with friends and family through email and on social media!
