Participants preparing themselves for the Polar Plunge
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -
For those brave enough to handle it, the Hannibal Polar Plunge is less than a week away.
Meghan Karr is one of roughly 50 people signed up ready to take the plunge in the icy Hannibal Marina. She said no matter what she does to prepare herself, the hardest part of the plunge is the mental part.
"Just knowing the shock that's coming there's nothing that can compare your body for that initial shock of your cold to start out with already and getting even colder just makes it a complete shock," she said.
The Hannibal Polar Plunge is next Saturday at 2:00 pm.
