In 2018 Chief Meteorologist Zach Paul helped raise $12,000 for Special Olympics Missouri. And a BIG thank you goes to you our viewers and local businesses for helping to make it happen! He is back at it again this year. The Super Plunge at Lake of the Ozarks is Friday and Saturday, February 22-23, 2019!
The Super Plunge is for true fans of Special Olympics – those who aren't afraid of the frigid waters and wind chills at Lake of the Ozarks in February. Super Plungers, as they're known, are fans who are brave enough to take the plunge not once, not twice, but 24 times in 24 hours.
Zach would love to match the $12,000 from last year and could once again, use your help!
You can be a Below-Zero Super Hero by joining the party and sign up to be a Plunger yourself. Or if you prefer to hibernate and stay warm, you can make a donation to his page. The donation site is simple, fast, and totally secure.
There will also be special events between now and the Plunge where you can stop by and show support. Some may even help satisfy your sweet tooth!
