Plunge Logo

Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s Polar Bear Plunge – held in conjunction with the PA Law Enforcement Torch Run – is a fundraising event in which individuals pledge $50 or more for the chance to run or jump into icy cold waters.

Due to the global pandemic, all 2021 Polar Bear Plunges across the state will take place during the month of February. Check your local plunge page for the date & location in your area! While the Plunge Season is going to look a bit different, we are excited to offer a variety of safe options in which to participate.
