2020 Polar Plunge Season Set

Polar PlungeGet ready for the Chill of a Lifetime! It’s time to make plans to be a part of the 2020 Polar Plunge nearest you! This year’s Plunge season has many changes, both to the schedule and to one event location.

What hasn’t changed is that the Greater Cincinnati Polar Plunge will kick things off when Polar Bears hit the water at Joe’s Crab Shack in Bellevue, Ky., on February 1. The biggest changes come with the Lake Cumberland Plunge, which moves up in the schedule to Feb. 15 AND moves back to Lee’s Ford Resort in Nancy, Ky. The Louisville Plunge will return for its second year at Texas Roadhouse Middletown on Feb. 22. Lexington will follow one week later on Feb. 29 at the Texas Roadhouse on Richmond Rd. The Western Kentucky Plunge and Polar 5k will finish out the Plunge season at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park in Gilbertsville on March 7.

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 10,200 athletes who participate in Special Olympics Kentucky programs annually.
