• Virtual Plungers - $50 Fundraising Goal
  • Too Chicken To Plunge - $50 Donation

Join us for our 2022 Capital Area Polar Plunge on Saturday, January 22, 2022 @ Gifford Pinchot State Park

The Capital Area Polar Plunge is held each year to benefit Special Olympics PA. Plungers commit to “Freezin’ for a Reason” and raise funds to dip a toe, wade, or jump into the icy waters to show their support for our athletes.

This frigid, family-friendly affair also includes music, activities, and more! Spectators can cheer on individuals or teams from the viewing areas, too.

We are so excited to see all of you in-person once again! We missed you this past year!

Register as a Virtual “Polar Popper” and you can participate from the comfort of home! Pop a cold water balloon over your head and share it on social media before plunge day. It’s a great way to virtually participate in the Capital Area Polar Plunge and to raise funds for our Special Olympics athletes!
