2018 Lake Cumberland
Polar Plunge

Saturday, March 3, 2018
Conley Bottom Resort

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 BEAR minimum of $75 to take part or $50 for Junior Plungers), but instead of walking, Polar Bears take a chilly dip into Lake Cumberland at Conley Bottom Resort.

Last year, more than 100 Polar Bears took the Plunge at Conley Bottom, raising more than $25,000 to support the efforts of Special Olympics Kentucky athletes.
