Whether you are Brave or Bonkers, we'll take either as long as you are #FreezinforaReason. Are you ready for the Chill of a Lifetime?!

Can’t plunge, but still want to support Special Olympics Kentucky? No problem. The Personal Polar Plunge allows participation from your own backyard or bathroom! The Personal Polar Plunge option, you sign-up online, raise money for Special Olympics, and then take the Plunge your own way! An ice bath in the tub, a cold dip in a kiddie pool, a spray down with a cold-water hose… or, just sit back and raise money without the chill! If you’re taking the Personal Polar Plunge, we encourage you to share a pic/video of your Plunge via the #ChillofaLifetime hashtag and tag @kypolarplunge. Be sure to post your Personal Polar Plunge pic/video by February 25. Check out this great how-to video!
