Important Polar Plunge Weather/Schedule Information


Are you BRAVE or BONKERS?  Don't worry, we'll take EITHER!

Each year, the Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Kentucky challenges hundreds of brave jumpers to be "FREEZIN' FOR a REASON" in support of the 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 — friends, schools, community organizations and businesses— to support Special Olympics Athletes. So many of the Greater Louisville community come together in this fun, family-friendly atmosphere!  Do your part at one of the COOLEST events of the season in 2019! You can take the plunge, donate or volunteer!  It'll be a memory you won't soon forget!

So, grab some friends, get BRAVE or BONKERS (again, either's fine with us!), register and start your fundraising page today!  All funds raised go to support more than 8,900 Special Olympics Athletes in Kentucky and all donations are tax-deductible. 

Join in the fun and support a G-G-G-Great Cause!
