For the 16th consecutive year, Texas Roadhouse will host the annual Special Olympics Polar Plunge, the charity’s biggest fundraising event of the year, on Saturday, February 29th.

More than 500 participants, some dressed in crazy costumes, will jump into a pool of icy water all for a good cause. Prizes will be awarded to the individuals and groups who’ve raised the most in donations. Participants and spectators are welcome to stay for a post-plunge bash and awards ceremony.

All funds raised by the Polar Plunge go to support the more than 10,000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities who participate in Special Olympics programs in Kentucky.
