|The Polar Plunge presented by Joe's Crab Shack 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 -- $50 minimum for Junior Plungers, ages 6-18), but instead of walking, Polar Bears take a chilly dip into a pool that will be set up in the parking lot at Joe’s Crab Shack.
Last year, the Polar Plunge raised more than $154,000 to support the efforts of Special Olympics athletes in Kentucky and Ohio.
