Polar Plunge will benefit Special Olympics Kentucky

Staff report

One of Special Olympics Kentucky's signature fundraising events will make a splash when the Polar Plunge hits the water at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park on Feb. 15.

Participants raise money from sponsors, register at 9 a.m. that day and then take a leap from the courtesy dock at Kentucky Dam Village into the wintry waters of Kentucky Lake to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Kentucky.

Plungers are encouraged to wear costumes for a chance to win one of many awards. Top individual fundraisers are recognized as Polar Plunge royalty with a King, Queen, Prince and Princess of the Plunge being crowned.

Those not wishing to brave the cold can register as Too Chicken to Plunge. Too Chicken participants raise money but instead of receiving a Polar Plunge T-shirt, they receive a special Too Chicken to Plunge shirt. Too Chicken participants also qualify for all other available fundraising prizes.

The second annual Polar 5K will precede the day's events with a start time of 9 a.m. Feb. 14. Registration is at 7:30 a.m. Both will take place at the Convention Center at Kentucky Dam Village. Opening ceremonies kick off at 10:45 a.m. and the plunge begins at 11:30. Plungers who wish to take part in the costume contest must be registered before 10:30 a.m. to be eligible.

All money raised at the Polar Plunge goes to benefit Special Olympics athletes.

Those interested in participating in the Polar Plunge and Polar 5K can sign up online at kentuckyplunge.com. Event brochures can also be requested from the Special Olympics Kentucky office by calling 1-800-633-7403.
