The Polar Plunge is 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.

The Western Kentucky Plunge offers many ways for you to take part. You can run in the annual Polar 5k, take the traditional Plunge form the docks into the lake or run in from the shore. If you’re REALLY adventurous you can take part in the Triple Crown Challenge and do all three!

Can’t plunge, but still want to support Special Olympics? No problem. Register for the Personal Plunge. You get a Plunge T-shirt and are eligible for all other fundraising awards.

Regardless of which option you choose, you’ll be Freezin’ for a Reason!


Family with championship crowns and medals at the Western Kentucky Polar Plunge.
