2019 Louisville Plunge - Jon's Team

Jon’s Team has been active in the Plunge for a long time. This year they raised nearly $14,000 in memory of longtime team member Jon Donlon, who was tragically killed in a car accident last year.


The Polar Plunge gives you the Chill of a Lifetime! Join us for the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics.

Raise a minimum of $75 (or $50 for Polar Bears under 18) and take the Plunge into a pool set up in the parking lot at Texas Roadhouse Middletown.

Individual and group costume winners will be announced during intermission. Prize categories include: top individual fundraiser, top group fundraising team, corporate/civic, school and law enforcement divisions.

Can’t plunge, but still want to support Special Olympics? No problem. Register as a Virtual Plunger. You get a Polar Plunge T-shirt and are eligible for all other fundraising awards.

Either way, you’ll be Freezin’ for a Reason!

2019 Louisville Polar Plunge - Clown Shark

The terrifying combination of a clown and shark dreamed up by Mary Ann Ritsch of the Keller Williams East team, won the judges’ hearts, and she claimed the Golden Plunger for best individual costume.
