______________________________Western Kentucky Polar Plunge

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! Join us for a HUGE day of winter fun! Run one of the state’s most beautiful 5k courses or take a chilly dip in Kentucky Lake, or do both! This year you can take your Plunge from the docks or run into the water from the beach. Prizes for the top individual fundraiser and for the top fundraising teams in corporate/civic, school and law enforcement divisions. There are also prizes for the best individual and group costumes.

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!
