Louisville Polar Plunge - Duck

The Polar Plunge provided the perfect environment for a duck to take a dip in the River.

Get ready for 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! This year you have the CHOICE of jumping off the docks into the Ohio River or into a pool set up in the Brown-Forman amphitheater. The River Plunge will begin at approximately 10:30 am followed by a short intermission. The Pool Plunge will begin after the intermission; however, all plungers must be on-site and registered by 12 pm.

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 Too Chicken to Plunge. You get a special Too Chicken shirt and are eligible for all other fundraising awards.

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