Another Special Olympics Kentucky Polar Plunge season is in the books. This year saw more than 1,700 brave Polar Bears take the leap into pools, lakes and rivers to support Special Olympics athletes throughout Kentucky. In all, 2016 Polar Plunge events raised more than $430,000 for the program.

Other than Special Olympics athletes, the big winner of the Plunge season was Amanda Ashlock, who participated in the Western Kentucky Polar Plunge. Ashlock was the second leading fundraiser at the event, and was entered into the Grand Prize drawing that included the top three fundraisers at each Plunge. Her name was pulled from the 15, making her the winner of a $1,000 travel certificate from AAA Travel.

The Polar Plunge continues to be the largest fundraising event program for Special Olympics Kentucky. Proceeds from the Polar Plunge are an important part of providing programs for the more than 7,800 Special Olympics Kentucky athletes who compete statewide. We greatly appreciate the efforts of our fundraisers, event sponsors and volunteers who continue to help make these events possible.
