Five of the six Polar Plunges are in the books for 2015 and only the Lake Cumberland Plunge remains. So far 1,800 brave Polar Bears have taken the Plunge for Special Olympics and another several hundred registered on-line or checked in for the Polar Plunge in Lexington, which became the first Polar Plunge in the 17 year history of the event in Kentucky to be canceled.
Mother Nature has made this the most challenging Polar Plunge season in our program's history. In addition to the Lexington event, the Polar 5k that has been a part of the Western Kentucky Polar Plunge had to be postponed because heavy snowfall made it impossible to clear a safe course and we held the couldest Louisville Polar Plunge in that events history.
We did manage to add an event to Plunge season with the additon of the Donut Dash 5k as part of the Owensboro Polar Plunge festivities and we are looking forward to a great event at Lake Cumberland.
