2014 Owensboro Polar Plunge

Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014
The Hines Center

The Polar Plunge is one of the biggest Special Olympics fundraisers of the year. The Plunge is a truly unique event and includes a fun, festive atmosphere with food and great prizes. The Plunge works just like a Walk-a-Thon, but with one big twist. Participants still solicit donations to support their effort (a BARE minimum of $75 to take part or $50 for Junior Plungers), but instead of walking, Polar Bears take a chilly dip into the lake at The Hines Center.

Last year, the Polar Plunge raised $37,000 to support the efforts of Special Olympics Kentucky athletes.
