The Polar Plunge & Polar 5K for Special Olympics Kentucky challenges you to get the "Chill of a Lifetime" in support of the 11,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities who participate in year-round sports and health programming provided by Special Olympics Kentucky. A Polar Plunge is one of the most unique fundraisers around. It’s a great way for everyone to get involved in supporting Special Olympics Athletes. Become a part of the coolest event of the season in 2021! Grab some friends, get excited, and register at WesternKYPlunge.com. NEW FOR 2021! Make your Polar Plunge personal. If you're not able to attend the event in person, you can take your plunge in the privacy of your own home by registering for our Personal “at home” Plunge. You can run through a sprinkler, make a snow angel, fill a kiddie pool on the lawn, get creative and have fun! Be sure to video and post your Personal Plunge to our facebook page #ChillOfALifetime. Please note that Covid safety precautions will be in place and enforced according to local and state health recommendations.
