The Polar Bear PUSH [Photos]

I have already shared the video of the 2014 Polar Bear PUSH!  Yes, I have renamed the "Plunge" the "Push" because my friend David Bristow, from Southern Star, offered up $100 to Special Olympics Kentucky if he could PUSH me into the 12-degree water.  And while the video is hilarious, it doesn't quite capture the play-by-play like these photos from Mark Smith Photography.  Check these out.  Mark totally captured the sequence of events!

WBKR and Southern Star Present: The Polar Bear PUSH [Video]

12 degrees.  That's how cold the water was Saturday for the 2014 Polar Bear Plunge.  12 degrees, People!  But, 157 plungers were there to jump in it anyway and help raise money for Special Olympics Kentucky.  I was going to plunge too . . . but had a change of heart when my friend David Bristow, from Southern Star, offered up an additional $100 to charity if he could push me in.  Naturally, I said "Yes!"  And the cameras were rolling.

Sign Up Now for the Polar Bear Plunge [Video]

How's that for an action shot?  Just a fraction of a second after hovering above the Hines Center Lake, we were swimming in it.  And a fraction of a second after this pic was taken,  I  was swearing like Andrew Dice Clay.  And, you know what?  I'm ready to do it all over again.  The freezing AND the swearing.  LOL!  The 2014 Polar Bear Plunge is coming up Saturday, February 8th at The Hines Center in Philpot and we are looking for folks to join us in raising money for Special Olympics Kentucky.

Heath and Molly Did It: “Camping for Kids” in the Brutal Cold Successful

They did it!  I thought they were nuts.  Some of you thought they were crazy.  But they did it!  McLean County singing duo Heath Eric and Molly G. spent Sunday night OUTSIDE as temperatures plummeted below zero and the wind chill dipped near -30 degrees.  The duo decided to take advantage of Mother Nature's cruel January joke and turn a negative (literally) into something positive.  They decided to Camp for Kids and raise awareness for those in Western Kentucky who are cold every winter . . . because they don't have the means to buy winter coats or heat their homes.  It was a brave and risky venture, but they did it!  And the husband and wife duo called The WBKR Waking Crew this morning as they thawed to share what is was like to camp in sub-zero temperatures!
