2014 Western Kentucky
Polar Plunge & Polar Plunge 5k

Saturday, Feb. 15, 2014
Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park

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 Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park.

Last year, the Polar Plunge raised more than $100,000 for the first time in its history to support the efforts of Special Olympics athletes.

This year's event is again joined by the Polar PLunge 5k, which will run through Kentucky Dam Village State Park that same day.
