*CANCELED* 2018 Louisville Polar Plunge


2018 Louisville Polar Plunge

Saturday, February 24, 2018

Dear Polar Bears:

This rain, rain won’t go away, so, we’re moving your Soggy Saturday plans to HopCat on Bardstown Road for the first ever Louisville Polar Plunge “No Splash Bash!”


We know you’ve worked hard to raise money to support Special Olympics and we want to celebrate your success! We will still hold the costume contest and award prizes for top fundraisers and top fundraising teams.

We are as disappointed as you are that the weather hasn’t cooperated this year. In our now 20 years of the Polar Plunge in Louisville, this is the first time that we have had to cancel the event. Due not only to water levels around the Ohio River, but also continuing severe weather concerns throughout the weekend, we have no choice but to make this decision.


Here’s the schedule for tomorrow:


(1064 Bardstown Road, 40204 Street Parking available)

10:30AM-Noon : Registration

11:30 AM : Opening Ceremonies & Costume Contest

12:00PM : Frozen Toes Tub

For those of you who must be Brave or Bonkers, you can test the ice waters of our baby Polar Bear pool! (changing tents are not available at HopCat)

12:30 PM : Awards Presentation

Again, we regret that the weather has kept us from holding the Plunge in the way that we are used to, but we hope you can still join us for a celebration of your hard work on behalf of Special Olympics Kentucky athletes!

Please contact me at 502-326-5002 or kbarnes@soky.org if you have any questions.
