The 5th Annual Beaver County Polar Plunge benefitting Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA), presented by Aerotek and Geico, featured more than 300 brave souls who jumped into the frigid waters of the Beaver River at Bridgewater Landing Marina and were “freezin’ for a reason” on January 7th in support of nearly 20,000 Special Olympics athletes. Thanks to its generous supporters, the Plunge raised nearly $95,000.
This year, Plunge Town offered activities for families to enjoy in the morning while waiting for friends and family to take a dip in the cold Beaver River. Festivities included games, refreshments, costume contest, live Plunge entertainment by DJ Joe Morris, and post Plunge entertainment by Justin Morris and Billy Schneider from the band, "Mercury," who performed at Mario's Dockside from 2-4 immediately following the Plunge.
Those who are too afraid to Plunge can still support Special Olympics PA by registering under "Too Chicken To Plunge"! For a $50 minimum donation, individuals can support their friends, family members and co-workers who are plunging and get their very own "Too Chicken To Plunge" long sleeved t-shirt. Individuals can join a team, start their own team, or be "Too Chicken" alone.
