The Lehigh Valley Polar Plunge is an event held to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Pennsylvania. Plungers commit to “Freezin’ for a reason” and raise money to dip a toe, wade, or jump on into the icy waters of the Delaware River.
Funds raised from the plunge support nearly 20,000 athletes that participate in Special Olympics activities across Pennsylvania.
About Special Olympics Pennsylvania
Special Olympics is a life-changing movement of people helping people. The athletes of Special Olympics — more than 20,000 strong here in Pennsylvania — are constant reminders of all that is right with the human spirit.
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
All training and competition opportunities are provided free of charge to the athletes and their families, enabling everyone to experience the benefits of Special Olympics that extend well beyond the playing field.
