(KTVI)-Scott Barthelmass, a sergeant with the Overland Police Department, might just be crazy. In order to raise money for Special Olympics, he will be one of a limited number of people to participate in the Super Plunge at the Lake of the Ozarks February 21st and 22nd. You’ve heard of Polar Bear Plunges, but this is different.  Scott will do 24 plunges in 24 hours, one every hour.

To be a Super Plunger, Scott has to raise $2,500. If you'd like to help, you can visit Scott's personal donation page.
