Turnout and fundraising have been AMAZING at the first two Polar Plunges of the year, in Bellevue and Louisville. More than 450 people plunged in the two events, with more taking part as Person Plungers doing their part from home, raising more than $225,000 so far.
Three Plunges remain on this year’s calendar. The Lexington and Western Kentucky Plunges will both be held on Saturday, March 6, and the season will conclude with the Lake Cumberland Plunge on March 13. There is still time to sign up for the Chill of a Lifetime.
“Go for the Cold” to support Special Olympics athletes by jumping in any of the Plunges. Raise a minimum of $75 to participate or set your sights on prizes earned by raising money at $300, $600 or even $1000! No matter how or where you choose to take part, your participation helps provide opportunities for the more than 11,000 athletes who participate in Special Olympics Kentucky programs throughout the year.
All efforts are being made to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for participants, spectators, and volunteers at each individual location. And, for 2021, the “Personal” Polar Plunge will be a new way to participate if you are unable to attend in person.
