Are you ready to Get Cold for a G-G-G0-Great Cause? Each year, the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Kentucky challenges hundreds of brave jumpers to get Freezin for a Reason in support of the over 8,900 children and adults with intellectual disabilities who participate in year-round sports and health programming provided by Special Olympics Kentucky.

The Polar Plunge is the most unique fundraiser around. It’s a great way for everyone —individuals, organizations and businesses—to get involved in supporting Special Olympics Athletes.  It’s the kind of thrilling event that you really must experience to understand. Since 1997 over 20,000 Plungers have raised over $5 million to support Special Olympics through the Polar Plunge! Be a part of the coolest event of the season in 2019! Plunge, spectate, donate or volunteer - you'll make an everlasting memory this winter season.

So, grab some friends, get pumped, register and make a fundraising page today!  All funds raised go to support more than 8,900 Special Olympics Athletes in Kentucky and all donations are tax-deductible. 

For more information about the Polar Plunge, contact Taylor at 502-695-8222 or by e-mail at Tballinger@soky.org

Getting Started is easy... 

Sign-up to lead a team of Plungers, join a team, or as an individual Plunger. Next, set a personal or team fundraising goal and collect donations from friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors in exchange for the right to jump into icy waters in the middle of winter. All Plungers MUST raise at least $75 to participate ($50 for Junior Plungers ages 6-18). And, the more you raise, the more prizes you will earn!
