2019 Polar Plunge Season Set

Polar PlungeIt’s time once again to get ready to be Freezin for a Reason! The schedule for the 2019 Polar Plunge season is set.

The Greater Cincinnati Polar Plunge will move back to its traditional week and lead off the season on Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Joe’s Crab Shack in Bellevue, Ky. Lexington will follow one week later on Feb. 9 at the Texas Roadhouse on Richmond Rd. Saturday, Feb. 16, the Plunge will move to Western Kentucky and be joined by the Polar 5k at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park in Gilbertsville. The Louisville Plunge will take place on Saturday, Feb. 23 in a brand-new location at the Texas Roadhouse in Middletown. And the Lake Cumberland Plunge will once again close out the season on March 2 at Conley Bottom Resort in Monticello.

The Western Kentucky Plunge will again feature two ways to go into the water. You can jump from a dock or run in from the beach. OR you can do both and add the Polar 5k to complete the Triple Crown Challenge.

Once again this year you can commit to the cold and raise money to support Special Olympics athletes by jumping in any of the Plunges, or you can register as a Virtual Plunger, skip the jump, raise money for Special Olympics and still qualify for great fundraising prizes. No matter how you choose to take part, your participation helps provide opportunities for the more than 8,900 athletes who participate in Special Olympics Kentucky programs annually.
